BloodSource, the not-for-profit community blood services organization serving Northern and Central California, said two local high schools won awards for their blood drives.
Golden Valley High School won a Symbol of Excellence Award, and Delhi High School won the Medium High School of the Year Award.Newly appointed crews for this school year's blood drive committees learned information about a critical community health need, the organization said. Blood drive committee advisers were given updates on any changes in blood donation issues and thanked for their help in providing a leadership opportunity for students.
BloodSource strives to collect about 700 units of blood each and every day to meet the needs of patients. High school seniors who participate on the school blood drive committee are eligible to apply for a $500 college scholarship from BloodSource.
