Yucaipa High students drive blood and organ donation.

The Yucaipa High School health and biomed students showed real leadership when they organized a blood drive and organ donation rally in the schools' gym several weeks ago. Working closely with their teacher/advisor Tana De Leon,  Christy Bethel from OneLegacy (#DonateLife),  and LifeStream, the students did a double hitter, using the blood drive as an opportunity to educate and encourage students to sign up for organ donation as well. It turned out that many of the students were more than eager and willing to save lives through the gift of organ donation.

Yucaipa High has recently developed a OneLegacy student leadership team to raise awareness about the need for organ donors in the Inland Southern California region. Many of the health and biomed students serve on the OneLegacy team. Their outreach resulted in 123 students giving blood and registering for organ donation through the California Donor Registry - not too shabby!

A special thank you to everyone who participated in the LifeStream Blood Drive and OneLegacy Donor Registry Drive and a big pat on the back to the amazing Biology and Medical Academy students, for a successful rally!
