Nadia Gandhi – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Blood Drive Committee is hosting a blood drive from 7 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. this Thursday.
Mustangs above the age of 16 can donate blood.
If Mustangs are 16 or below, they must have parental consent.
Suncoast Blood Centers, a local blood bank which provides blood to local hospitals such as Moffit Cancer Center and Lakewood Ranch Medical Center, will sponsor the blood drive.
Suncoast Blood Centers will provide donors with free t-shirts and food from Chick-fil-A.
LRHS Blook Drive Committee adviser Rebekah Lester said, “For the fall Blood Drive, we had just under 100 donors, and I am excited to see our donors grow in numbers as the holidays approach.”
Blood Drive Committee President-elect and LRHS junior Ainsley Ellis said, “Donating blood is something incredible many can do. When you donate, you are helping to save up to three lives.”
Donors have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship.
Mustangs can donate throughout the day during any class period.
“This is an amazing gift of life students can give just before the holidays,” continued Lester.
Mustangs interested in donating blood can sign up through lunch Nov. 30.
