National Service Project
Every two years, HOSA adopts a national service project. For 2023-2024 HOSA's national service project is "Be The Match". Be The Match is a nonprofit organization operated by the National Marrow Donor Project with the goal of connecting patients with their donor match for a life-saving bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant. The thousands of people diagnosed with blood cancers and diseases depend on Be The Match.
Join Texas HOSA this year as we add new potential donors to the registry, donate our own blood stem cells and marrow, and fundraise in support of the thousands who rely on Be The Match.
