Crofton Schools will host Blood Drive
Crofton High School will host the LifeServe Blood Center for a blood drive on November 17th from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Students are able to sign up for any time slot within this period to donate blood. Students under the age of 18 will be asked to have parental guardians sign off on the interest of donating blood. Community members are also able to donate by making appointments or walk ins are also welcome.
Statistics show blood is needed every two seconds in the United States. That means 44,000 blood donations are used every day. A single donation of blood could potentially save around three people. Not only can it benefit others, but it can also benefit the donor. Donating blood can preserve cardiovascular health, reduces the risk of cancer, and burns calories. People burn about 650 calories per pint of blood donated. The reduction of iron in the body can help reduce the risk of cancer and reduce the chance of cardiovascular diseases.
If you are interested or have any questions you can call Crofton High School at 402-388-2440 or contact Addie Rossman, Haley Arens, or Marissa Schmidt.
