LifeSource Blood Donor Program
The Auxiliary at Highland Park Hospital partners with LifeSource - Chicagoland's Blood Center to sponsor blood drives at NorthShore Highland Park Hospital throughout the year. Blood donors begin a cycle of care for neighbors, family and friends who rely on blood transfusions to overcome disease, illness or accidents. Since blood cannot be manufactured, it truly is a gift one person gives another. People will tell you they donate because it makes them feel good. Each donation can save up to three lives. The need for blood is great.
Donors must be at least 17 years old and weigh more than 110 pounds. Remember to eat a good meal and drink plenty of liquid before donating blood. You will be required to show identification that displays either a social security number, driver's license or state identification number.
Blood drives are scheduled in the lower level meeting room at Highland Park Hospital from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the following dates in 2014: January 9, March 13, May 8, July 10, August 18, and November 13.
Make a difference to a homebound person. The Mobile Meals Program at NorthShore Highland Park Hospital delivers meals to people who are homebound, at nutritional risk or cannot prepare their own meals. Delivery areas include Highland Park, Deerfield, Highwood and Glencoe. Meals are picked up at the Hospital and delivered between 11:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. For many recipients, this is the only social contact they have in a day.

NorthShore Kids' Corner Program
The Auxiliary at Highland Park Hospital’s NorthShore Kids' Corner program is offered to second grade classrooms in our community. The purpose of the program is to reduce anxiety and apprehension that children might have about being treated at a hospital through a classroom presentation about the variety of services and activities hospitals offer. Auxiliary Board members visit classrooms with a presentation about NorthShore Highland Park Hospital. The children have the opportunity to ask questions, examine some medical equipment and have a small cast placed on a finger. At the end of the program, each child receives an Activity Book and a Parents' Packet with information to take home. For schools that prefer to visit NorthShore Highland Park Hospital, the program includes a tour of the Hospital. For more information on how to sign up your classroom or to volunteer to lead a program, contact The Auxiliary at Highland Park Hospital at 847.926.5003.
