Blood drive registration begins

Rachel Lamoureaux and Olivia Loop – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The next LRHS Blood Drive is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 30. Donation appointment signups are Thursday, Friday, and Monday in the cafeteria during lunches. There is a Blood Drive committee meeting after school in 931 this Friday.

At the meeting they will introduce what is excepted when signing people up and how the lunch shifts went. They will make sure that there are enough people signed up to cover the actual shift day.

Blood Drive adviser and LRHS biology teacher Marie Whalen will be expecting good results because, “This is our most popular drive, it’s the Brett Wagner and Josh Rogers benefit drive.”

It’s a memorial blood drive for the Buckle Up for Bubba and Bswag Association (BUBBA), which is a local seatbelt awareness program in memory of two Mustangs killed in a 2012 traffic accident. Whalen will also be matching scholarship funds raised at this drive for the Blood Drive senior scholarship fund.
