The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas is calling all high school and college students to join its “Holiday Heroes” program for a chance to win a $1,000 college scholarship.

To qualify, students must host a blood drive with CBCC between Nov. 21-30 or between Dec. 19-Jan. 9. CBCC will award a $1,000 scholarship to the student who collects the most units, with a minimum requirement of 25 units.

So get out there and recruit friends, family, neighbors and church members.
