The New Glarus High School will be participating in an American Red Cross Blood Drive. Our school has an opportunity to participate in a scholarship program for students by participating in the blood drive program.
In response to the ever-increasing need for blood, we are asking for your support and participation in our upcoming blood drive. Besides encouraging your son or daughter (age 16 and up) to donate blood at our upcoming school blood drive on Friday, June 1st from noon to 6 p.m., we are inviting you to donate blood as well.
The top priority of the American Red Cross is to provide the safest possible blood supply for patients in need. There are seven layers of safety that help protect the blood supply, which include self-deferrals, completion of the blood donation record, health history screening, confidential unit exclusion, testing, and post donation information. These multiple layers of safety demonstrate the robust systems in place. All donation supplies are used only once and then discarded.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our school to teach our students about the life-saving mission of the American Red Cross, and we ask for your full support.
You can set up an appointment today to donate blood by contacting Susanna Rupp (email@example.com). Thank you in advance for your support.
