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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
