blood drive

FBLA and Shepeard Blood Center will be hosting a blood drive on Friday, February 23rd  on the Bloodmobile buses from 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m..  

Donors should be sure to eat a nutritious breakfast and drink lots of water on the day of the blood drive.  Additionally, donors should begin now eating iron rich foods in their meals to help avoid low iron which eliminates a person from donating.

Students must be at least 16 years of age, meet height and weight requirements, AND have parent permission to donate blood.  Morning donors will receive a free breakfast item.  And all blood donors will receive snacks and a free t-shirt while supplies last.

All students who donate blood will also receive a free 100 ticket to be used in a high school classroom at the teacher's discretion.  Students under the age of 16 are encouraged to recruit a donor on their behalf to also earn the free 100 ticket.  

Additionally, students who donate OR recruit donors on their behalf three times during one school year will earn a Red Cord to wear at graduation.  This is our THIRD blood drive of the year, so this is your THIRD chance to work toward earning that Red Cord for this school year!!!  

Faculty and staff are also encouraged to join a great cause and donate!  Our goal is to have 75 people present to be blood donors on Friday, February 23rd

Blood donor forms are available from Mrs. Donaldson in Room 206 or Mrs. Deal in Room 207.  

Remember each blood donation saves up to three lives!
