Host a School Blood Drive

LifeSouth is your community blood center, providing blood to our community hospitals. We are local, which means the blood collected here stays here to help local patients.

By hosting a blood drive with LifeSouth, teachers, staff and students make a direct impact by helping save lives, and students learn the importance of civic responsibility and community giving.


I am the Donation Generation

LifeSouth’s I am the Donation Generation program educates school-aged children on the science behind donation through hands-on interactive elements as well as the social responsibility of donation.

The curriculum is straightforward, easy to teach in one class period and works with state standards.

Community Service Hours

LifeSouth appreciates students’ time and commitment to helping the community blood supply. We grant community service hours for time volunteered helping organize and recruiting at the blood drive.

High School Honor Cord Program

Students who donate four or more times with LifeSouth during their high school career are recognized with an honor cord to wear during graduation ceremonies.
