Blood Drive Monday at WHS

A blood drive, organized by Whitehall High School senior Kassi Van Guilder, will be held from on Monday, Jan. 7, at the school.

The drive will be held from noon to 5 p.m. in the Large Group Instructional Room. Walk-ins are welcome although appointments can be made by calling the school at 499-1770 or Van Guilder at 499-5344.

Van Guilder organized a previous blood drive that netted 46 pints of blood and is hoping to hit 50 pints this time around. A third blood drive will be held later this spring.

January is national blood donor month but it can be a difficult time of the year to collect blood because of weather and busy post-holiday schedules. The need, however, is greater than ever. According to American Red Cross, hospital patients nationwide need about 44,000 blood donations daily for various medical treatments.

Monday’s blood drive is open to any healthy adults and children 16 years or older who have parental consent. Donors are encouraged to eat a meal and drink plenty of fluids before donating.

Everyone who donates will receive a voucher for a free pound of coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts.
