The Key Club is sponsoring a blood drive for the American Red Cross on Tuesday, November 8. This will take place in the middle school gym from 9:00 AM to 2:45 PM.
For a pint of your blood, you can save three lives, maybe even someone you know.
Donors have to be 16 or older, and have to be 110 pounds or more to donate blood. If you are sick, meaning have the flu or vomiting, do not donate blood in case of further sickness transmitting into another’s blood stream when the blood transplant takes place. Although having a mild cold is fine. You also cannot donate if you have any type of rash going on in case of skin diseases. If you have a tattoo and plan on donating, the tattoo should have been done with sterilized needles and ink that has not been reused.
If you are interested in donating a pint of blood, go to redcrossblood.org to schedule on line or call 1-800-733-2767 to schedule over the phone.
The Key Club and the Red Cross would highly appreciate your presence to help out those in need.
