Blood Drive - Donating blood saves lives. Those students who are 16 years or older and have parental permission, are encouraged to donate blood. Participants must also fulfill a list of requirements such as minimum weight of 110 lbs., must be in generally good health, and must not have had a tattoo or body piercing within the past year. Upon donation, students will receive a Blood Donor Card which provides blood preference for the student or family member in any unfortunate case.
