The Student Council is conducting their annual Spring Blood Drive on Tuesday February 23rd here at RHS in the Coll Gym from 8am-2pm.
This is a challenging year to hold a blood drive, however, the need is great and the Student Council has pledged to assist the Red Cross.. The Red Cross is utilizing extraordinary precautions to ensure that all donors and workers are safe. If a donor has had the covid, that is actually a benefit as their antibodies will be utilized to help COVID patients. The post-COVID blood donors antibodies will help four other individuals.
Please inform family and friends who might be potential donors that they may register at redcrossblood.org or by calling 1.800-RED-CROSS There is an abundance of information for donors online to answer all of their questions.
Donors who have received the vaccination must know the company that manufactured their vaccine. (They should receive a card giving them that information when they receive the vaccination)
(Our students will receive $500 in scholarship money for every 24 pints collected.)
