Donating blood helps millions of people all over the world.

In order to donate blood, you must be sixteen or older. If you are sixteen, you must have a parent/guardian consent form signed in order to donate. You must have a healthy iron level, a good night’s sleep, and a healthy breakfast. Make sure to drink lots of water too.

“Students should donate blood because it does help to save lives and also when people donate blood it helps to give them a boost not only mentally but physically,” said Dana Trantor, Health Occupations teacher.

Donating blood helps the community and benefits students who run the blood drive. It helps the students be more organized as they show students where to go.

“It is just fun to be able to be there for people who may be a little nervous,” said Mary Winking, Senior.

The students who run the blood drive help keep you relaxed and they will explain every step. They will also make sure you are able to give blood.

“It’s not as scary as you think it is and each time you donate you help save three people’s lives,” said Winking.
