The National Honor Society is going to be hosting TWO blood drives this year (the first date is included. The second date will be announced later). The first one will be on Thursday, October 18th from 8:00a -1:00p. It is extremely important to give this time of the year because of hurricane season. Because of Hurricane Florence a few weeks ago, over 150 Red Cross blood drives were canceled, which resulted in over 4400 uncollected donations. Don’t wait for the next hurricane to donate. “Every two seconds, someone in America needs blood, including cancer patients, accident and burn victims, people needing surgery, and more. Hospitals need about 44,000 units of blood every day to meet patient needs” (American Red Cross).

We are doing the registration a little differently this year. We would like you to sign up directly on the Red Cross website. Go to www.redcrossblood.org Find the “Find a Blood Drive” box (see the image below), and enter CREC. Once you pick a time, you will be prompted to sign in or create an account. Be a hero, and sign up!
