The Blood Drive will be at PHS in the lower gym on Tuesday, November 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Red Cross will be here to collect donated blood from eligible students. Students should have received an email the previous week from Blood Drive Coordinator Danelle Manship on a form to fill out for donor eligibility.
Students who are 16 years old can donate blood with parental consent. Those who are 17 and older can donate without parental consent. In order to donate, students must have a photo ID present and the Red Cross will put students through a screening process to see if they are eligible before beginning the donation process.
“Students who donate blood to the Blood Drive should expect to have their blood taken from the Red Cross. The blood is donated to other people in need of it,” said Manship.
