red crossNow that the school year is in full swing, CAS students are participating in a variety of enriching activities; the semiannual CAS blood drive which took place September 9th was a prime example of service learning to benefit the greater community. CAS had a total of 45 units donated which represent 135 potential saved lives through blood transfusions.

Four times a year, CAS partners with the American Red Cross to offer a community blood drive for staff, students, and Sierra Vista residents who are all invited to donate to this worthwhile cause. Additionally, high school students earn volunteer hours by helping to set up and supervise the blood drive while learning about the life-saving medical technology. Students and community members age sixteen or older are eligible to donate though they will be required to answer routine medical questions and present a photo ID. Minors (under age 18) also must have a signed parental consent form in order to donate. Thanks to the high school volunteers and our blood drive coordinator, Wendy Koop, for making this event such a success. Another big thank  you to all our our donors without whom none of this would be possible. Be sure to check for photos of the event coming soon to our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CASSierraVista.
