Community Donors Welcome as Walk-Ins!

Each year, Grant Union High School partners with Sacramento BloodSource and hosts two blood drives -- one in the fall and one in the early spring.  Students, staff, and community come together to give the gift of life, and with each new drive, we collect more and more life-saving units of blood.

  • Three teaspoons of blood can save a baby's life
  • One donation has the potential to save as many as three lives
