There will be mask-wearing, social distancing and disinfecting throughout the day. This blood drive will help save so many lives, including: accident victims, cancer patients, people suffering from sickle-cell anemia, heart surgery patients and organ transplant patients. Every 2 seconds in the US, there are blood donations needed. Additionally, many blood drives at school and colleges have been closed due to the pandemic, making donations even more important. After giving blood, the donors will be provided with many different food options including: Chipotle, pizza, a variety of snacks and drinks etc. To be eligible to donate blood, you must be 16 years old and above. All students are required to fill out a parental consent form, which can be found in the guidance office.
