At the NCCBB we believe that providing a safe and adequate supply of blood and blood products to the patients we serve is not only a great mission statement for our staff but also for our community.
What does it take to earn the Red Cord?
Donate blood three times during your high school career.
Donations don’t even need to happen at a high school drive. Stop by the Blood Bank or any mobile blood drive to donate.
The Blood Donor Honor Cord demonstrates a significant contribution to our community. By taking the time and effort to donate 3 or more times, you demonstrate a commitment to blood donation that will continue to impact our community for many years. It demonstrates the tremendous character and selflessness that every college, employer, and community respects and values. We have no doubt that individuals who earn this recognition will go on to be leaders in their communities and accomplish great things.
The Fine Print:
Due to various deferral criteria, it’s not always possible to donate at high school drives so plan on an extra donation (or two) to be sure you reach your goal by graduation.
