For it’s service to the community, High Point Academy Spartanburg has been recognized by the American Red Cross as a Premier Blood Partner for 2019. Each school year HPA holds at least three blood drives, inviting students, who are at least sixteen, parents and the community to donate. As a part of the commitment to serve their community, over the past year, the school helped collect 158 units in blood donations. That equates to saving 474 lives. The Red Cross says consistently holding blood drives that produce quality donors is one of the key elements to being recognized as a Premier Partner.
The Premier Blood Partners program is designed exclusively for the top blood drive partners to recognize and augment the efforts they contribute to the community and national blood supply. Blood drive partners are an essential part of the life-saving network that connects generous blood donors to patients who need blood to survive. This program offers recognition to the American Red Cross’ highest contributing sponsors – starting at 50 donations collected per year, with a minimum blood drive size of 30 units.
Our next blood drive will be Wednesday, May 1 from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. Anyone interested in donating can schedule an appointment online. You can also call the school at 864-316-9788 and ask for the nurse’s office to make an appointment or call 1-800-RED-CROSS. Everyone is welcome to donate. Walk-ins will be taken by availability. You must be at least 16-years-old to donate. Anyone who gives blood May 1 – June 10 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card.
