Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, June 2nd

Key Club is sponsoring a Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, June 2nd in the Red Cross Blood Mobile outside the US Commons.

Time slots are available every 15 minutes from 12 PM - 4:45 PM. Approximately 1 hour is needed to register, give, and eat a snack. Email me ( now to get the best time available for your schedule.

16 year-olds can donate; read and complete this paperwork:

For all girls under 18, new weight guidelines are listed here: There will not be a scale or yard stick, you will give your own weight and height, so be prepared for this.

For those who have given double before, we will only be doing whole blood donation, because the bus can’t fit a double red cell machine.

If you can't donate blood, you can help by helping at check in or canteen. At Check-In you will give the donors some information to read before they donate and if they qualify, move them to the donation area. At the Canteen, you will serve the donors food and drink and monitor them for any reactions. Let me know if you're interested in either of these important support tasks, and what class period you can come.

Thanks so much for your time, please consider helping us meet our goal of 50 units
