I’m Grace. And I’m ABO Joe. And we’re from Red Cross Club.
Only 37 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood – less than 10 percent do annually. About one in seven people entering a hospital need blood. Just your donation of one pint of blood can save up to three lives.” that means that if all of the 20 students in your class where to donate blood, as many as 60 lives could be saved ! This Friday, January 17th, Lincoln High will be holding our second blood drive of the year! Your blood will go to the Nebraska Community Blood Bank and will be transported all over the state. Forms to sign up can be found in Mr. Riley’s room (room 138 in band hall) or can be picked up at the attendance office. You must be at least 16 years to sign up.Turn in your forms to a Red Cross member or the office. When you turn in your forms, there will be a sign up sheet in the attendance office which will have a time and period to sign up for when you would like to donate. After your donation, you will get snacks like cookies and juice. Even if you hate needles, you can still be a hero today! So please make the decision to give blood and make a difference in somebody’s life.
