POTTSTOWN STUDENT GOVERNMENT WANTS YOUR BLOOD

November 7, 2012

This comes to us via John Armato at the School District…

Pottstown High School Student Government is hosting a blood drive on November 16th. It will be held in the high school band room and will begin at 7:30 AM. 

The requirements for someone to donate blood are:

  • must be 17 years of age
  • must be at least 110 pounds
  • must not have received a tattoo or body piercing within the last year.

You must register in advance by Nov. 13th! To donate contact Mr. Mark  Agnew at magnew@pottstownsd.org with  name and time you would like to donate on Nov. 16th. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Blood transfusions save more than 4 million lives each year. Student Government President Megan O’Donnell reminds all “it is estimated that blood is needed every two seconds, and that 1 out of 7 people entering the hospital will need blood. Since blood cannot be manufactured or harvested, it can only come from people like YOU – the volunteer blood donor! Thank you in advance!”

DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS NOVEMBER 13.  THERE WILL BE NO WALK-INS THAT DAY. Enter at the High School main office.
