Give Life!

Join Ravens who are committed to save lives by donating blood at our Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, June 3rd after your Science Exam!

FAQs Answered:
  • There is no replacement for real blood, it's needed every day, especially in the summer!
  • The finger prick to test for iron levels is the most painful part, donating is not a bad experience!
  • You can be 16 with this permission form signed.
  • You must weigh 110+, but if you're shorter than 5'6", see this chart to make sure.  
  • See this page for other eligibility questions, including travel outside the country.  
  • You can easily raise your iron by taking a multivitamin with iron for the next 2 weeks. 
  • You will get free pizza, baked goods, and soda before you leave, and you'll be done in about 1 hour!  
  • Service Hours may count for next school year because all Juniors and Seniors are done with classes! 

See Jaxson Stocks or Mrs. Thrash this week to sign up!
