The American Red Cross is the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States, as well as a leader in increasing blood donation and ensuring donor safety. The Red Cross relies on voluntary donations and the support of the communities and schools to achieve their mission of helping to save lives.
The goal of the Pint-Size Hero program is to engage elementary schools students, faculty and parents as they host blood drives and participate in an educational program. The program includes classroom activities to support the school’s upcoming blood. Students are called upon to recruit donors for the drive and are rewarded for their participation.
