Blood Drive at Mercy Tuesday, Oct. 11th

October 5th, 2011

The American Red Cross and Mercy for LIFE are joining forces again this year to provide a Blood Drive next
Tuesday, October 11 from 7:30 am - 12:30 pm in the Mercy gym.

We REALLY need parents and other adults to help meet our goal of 50 pints. For every pint we donate, at least three lives are assisted.

Appointment times are being taken this week and next. Parents can sign up for an appointment time at the Parent/Teacher conference Thursday night, during lunch on Friday or Monday, or by contacting Mr. Tolcher.

Students interested in giving blood must be at least 16 years old and meet certain requirements. Parental consent is needed for students who are 16.

Donors are asked to set aside one hour for the entire process.

House points will be awarded this year to show our appreciation to the donors; Ten points per person and a winning amount for the House with the most donors.

For more information or to make a donation appointment, please contact Mr. Tolcher.
