Sign Up for Blood Drive on Oct. 25

Saint George’s will hold its bi-annual blood drive from 9am to 2pm on Wednesday, Oct. 25. The percentage of people who will need a blood donation or have someone close to them need a blood transfusion is 97%, but currently only 3% of people donate. You can help save a life by signing up with the American Red Cross for the SGS blood drive. Students ages 16 and 17 can donate (if they weigh at least 110 lbs.) but need parent permission (check with Melanie Mildrew for the permission form). A regular donation only takes about 10-15 minutes depending on recovery time (there will be snacks and drinks!), but the entire process is about 45 minutes. Thank you!
