SAVE THE DATE: Donate blood on March 19.

Every year FBLA holds a blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross. By donating just one pint of blood, you could be saving the lives of 4 people. Last year, we had 45 staff and students participate and collected a total of 45 pints (or 720 cubic ounces) of blood. This year, our goal is to fill 60 ┬ápints during the blood drive. If you’re 16 years old, you can donate with parental permission. If you’re older than 16, you don’t need permission to donate blood. Join us in helping save lives by donating blood.

HOW:
You can sign up to donate any time this week in the cafeteria during your lunch period. For more information, you can visit the sign-up table. The blood drive will take place on March 19th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:40 p.m. in the BUHS multipurpose room.

WHY:
By donating blood, you could be saving somebody’s life. Not only is that a great feeling and something you can feel proud of. Plus, in years to come, it’s a pretty awesome story to tell your kids.
