CBCC offers scholarships

Wednesday, June 26, 2012 — The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas (CBCC) will be kicking off its “Students Saving Summer Scholarship” program on June 1.

Area high school and college students who organize and host a successful blood drive with CBCC between June and September have the chance to earn scholarship money for their secondary education. CBCC will award five (5) $1,000 scholarships to the  students who hold the top-producing blood drives.

“Students make up a large part of our donor base so this is a great opportunity to keep them engaged in the summer months when blood supplies tend to drop because of school breaks and family vacations,” said Martin Grable, president and CEO of Community Blood Center of the Carolinas. “We look forward to recognizing deserving students with scholarships for their efforts in helping stock our summer blood supply and supporting local patients.”

Participating students must hold their blood drive between June 1 and Sept. 30; select a location; recruit donors; and collect a minimum of 25 units of blood to be eligible for the scholarship. Each student will be paired up with a CBCC representative who will provide assistance with planning the blood drive. The CBCC scholarship donation must be directly transferred to the college, university or other learning establishment of each winner’s choice.
