GRANVILLE — PCHS Interact will sponsor a Red Cross blood drive from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, at Putnam County High School in Granville. The blood drive will be open to students, community members, faculty and staff.
It is a fitting way to remember the fallen and to honor the first-responders of 9-11. Save a life with your donation. Also, units donated at PCHS blood drives earn Red Cross scholarship money — the more donors give, the more Red Cross gives in scholarship dollars at the end of the school year.
A free breakfast will be provided before school to all students scheduled to give blood, compliments of PC Rotary Club. All donors, and particularly students, are urged to eat breakfast and lunch, and drink plenty of fluids, before donating.
Students age 16 may also donate with parent’s written permission on forms available in the school’s front office. All donors must show a photo ID.
Appointments and walk-ins are all welcome. For priority, call 1-800 RedCross or sign up on line at RedCrossBlood.org.
