CAS September Blood Drive Has Potential to Save 135 Lives

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.

CAS November Blood Drive Saves Potential 78 Lives

red crossIn an ongoing partnership with The American Red Cross, The Center for Academic Success held its November blood drive in the administrative building and received 26 donations from students, staff, and community members. The donations will be used to save up to 78 lives. Annual blood drives are just one of the many ways CAS encourages and facilitates student community service and involvement. In fact, our seniors are required to perform 25 hours of service to local nonprofits in order to earn their diploma. Citizenship is one of our key values at CAS, and we are proud to support this worthy cause.
