Donate Blood on March 22 at Waitsburg Gym

WAITSBURG—Waitsburg National Honor Society students, in coordination with the local American Red Cross, will hold a blood drive on March 22 in the high school gym from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Advisor Olivia Leid and the NHS have hosted blood drives for the past ten years. The donated blood stays in the Pacific Northwest unless there is an emergency.

Scheduled appointments are appreciated and can be made by calling Leid at Waitsburg High School at (509) 337-6351. Walk-ins are welcome. Donors must be 18 and over; sixteen and seventeen-year-old students can donate with parental permission. Donors need to show a picture I.D. Leid has the permission forms.

The American Red Cross will provide medical personnel and handle the paperwork. The NHS students will assist with set-up, check-in, the snack table, and clean-up at the end of the blood drive.

Your donation matters. Make an appointment today.
