FCCLA will be sponsoring a blood drive on October 31 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the lower gym. Any staff member and students who are at least 16 years of age can participate in the blood drive. If a student is 16 years old, they must have a parental permission form in order to donate. Parental permission forms are not required for students who are 17 or older. Complete the form sent out through email from FACS teacher Danelle Manship to sign up.
The day of the blood drive, all donors will need to make sure they have a form of identification and the parental permission form if they are 16. The Red Cross will register each participant and take an iron sample before collecting a donation.
“If you are planning to donate, we ask that you eat breakfast, lunch or a snack before your donation time and drink lots of water the day before,” said Manship.
