NHS will be hosting their annual Blood Drive on Wednesday, March 25. All juniors and seniors are eligible to give blood if they pass the screening. Students will be given half sheets of paper to request a donation time. Times run from 9:15 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. Each student will receive a parental consent form with common questions answered and more information written on the back.
One single person’s donation of one pint of blood can save up to three lives. Every two seconds someone needs a blood transfusion; with five million patients in the US each year. Come out and donate to help support this important cause.
If a student plays a spring sport it is recommended that they do not donate blood if they have a game/meet that night. They can still participate in a light practice if they donate at an earlier time. Food will be provided for blood donors – featuring donations from Chipotle and local pizza places.
If you have any questions or concerns visit Mr. Marchesi or a student coordinator.
