Students of SWS as well as people from all walks of life participated in the blood drive. SWS employees also played a key role in organizing the event.
The function was presided over by Ms. Marci Villegas, Lead Medical Instructor at Southwest Schools in Corpus Christi. Later in the day Chris Miteff, Vice President of Southwest Schools also visited the donors and congratulated them for being a part of this worthwhile initiative.
This volunteer blood drive by Southwest Schools was highly appreciated by Coastal Bend Blood Center, which is an independent non-profit community-based blood center and is the largest provider of blood products and services in North America.
The drive continued from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm and more than 12 units of blood were collected in total.
Donor’s contributions were acknowledged by the CBBC certificates. “We hope this drive will motivate and inspire more students to participate in social projects in the future” commented (CBBC).
“Thank you Southwest School for your exemplary performance and exceeding your blood drive goal,” said Lisa C (CBBC), in recognition of commendable performance by Southwest Schools.
This worthwhile cause received a great response from students and faculty of SWS. The blood units were distributed to needy people at several different government run and private hospitals.
Southwest School got its start in San Antonio, Texas in 1979. With ten schools in seven cities throughout Central and South Texas, SWS provides quality education leading to professional certification in the fields of allied health, business, accounting and cosmetology.
