High school students have a chance to make a big difference in the lives of people in their community by taking part in blood drives and helping save lives.
BCP receives a significant amount of our blood supply from high school blood drives. We rely on the support and dedication of our area high schools to maintain a safe and adequate blood supply for patients throughout the Bay Area.
Statistics have shown that people who begin donating blood in high school are more likely to continue giving blood throughout their lifetime. BCP’s goal is to cultivate that habit - the HEROES for Life High School Program encourages students to take part in blood drives, donate blood and to make it a lifelong commitment.
BCP invites you and your school to participate in the HEROES for Life Scholarship Program. Through this program, students not only have the opportunity to help others in their community, but also to raise money to be used for educational scholarship at establishments of higher education (e.g. colleges, universities, community colleges, institutions, technical centers), to support tuition assistance.

If you would like to volunteer at BCP or know someone who would like to help us out, let us know! We offer various volunteer opportunities to high school students and adults. It is a great way to give back, meet new people and learn new skills, while helping to save lives!
