The Red Cross Club at Gateway Regional High School will hold a Blood Drive in the Gateway High school gymnasium on Tuesday, November 6 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., where students, staff and community members can donate their blood for a great cause. Students aged 16 may donate, but must get a parent’s consent; donors 17 years or older do not need consent.
The Red Cross Club will be giving T-shirts to donors at Gateway’s Blood Drive, while supplies last.
Sign-ups will be held in the cafeteria during lunch. You may also call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code GRHS 12 to schedule an appointment. Drop -ins are also welcome.
Blood and plasma are routinely needed to replace blood lost due to traumatic injuries, burns and/or surgical procedures. There are also many chronic medical conditions, such as cancer, lymphoma and sickle cell disease, that require transfusions. One pint of blood can save up to three lives. Giving blood not only saves lives, but qualifies our Red Cross Club members for scholarship money.
Visit RedCrossBlood.org to learn more about giving blood. You may also save time by using the RapidPass (on that website) to complete required reading and health history questions on the day of your appointment.
The upcoming blood drive at Gateway is the perfect opportunity to help others. This will be the first drive of the year.
