The HOSA club annually invites students to help save a life by donating blood. We usually have a competition between other schools to see who gets a higher number of volunteers. Although many people sign up, they don’t know why it’s important or what the process is.

It is a fact that, “Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood”, we’re informed by the American Red Cross. With this in mind, one of these many people could be someone you know. Most people have the ability to be a saver and all that is required are 15 minutes and about 1 pint of blood.

 

During the lunch periods, permission slips will be passed out to underage students who would like to donate. The blood drive will be on Oct. 5 from 8:15 a.m-3 p.m. in the small gym. If you are 18 years or older all you need is an identification and a copy of your schedule to see what time is best.

There are different sections according to the process. The first being signing in and doing pre-examinations to make sure you are able to donate. The next and most important is the actual donating with professional phlebotomists. The final step is recovery where they will see if everything’s fine and offer you a snack and water.

Students and Staff, please sign up as soon as possible to save lives and help beat the competition!
