Battlefield HS Spring Blood Drive : May 28
Battlefield High School's Spring Blood Drive with American Red Cross Blood Services, will be Thursday, May 28 from 7:30 AM - 1:30 PM.  The blood drive will be held in the Auxiliary Gymnasium.  
Students 16 years and older may sign up online using this link.  Click on Schedule a new appointment and then login, or register as a new user.  Every student who would like to donate blood must  return a signed parent permission form to the clinic prior to participating.  (Download here)  This form can also be picked up in person at the school clinic.  If you would like additional information, stop by the clinic before or after school or during your lunch shift.

The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.  Thank you in advance for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!
