The nonprofit community blood bank BloodSource recognized SCUSD’s Charles A. Jones Career and Education Center at its annual partners appreciation brunch held on April 11 at the Radisson Hotel.

The center was given the Outstanding Contribution to BloodSource award and another honor for its commitment to helping those in need.

The Medical Assisting Program at the center has been organizing blood drives for almost five years, including one coming up in June.  BloodSource called on the school twice last year to hold extra blood drives when the region’s blood supply was dangerously low. The medical assisting class and the student council at the center were ready to jump to the aid of our community to help save lives.

Established in 1948, BloodSource provides life-saving services to millions of people in 26 counties throughout Northern and Central California.
