Sign up for Blackman’s Blood Drive! (Emma Williams)

Blackman is hosting a Blood Drive on November 2. You can schedule an appointment with Bergen Sheppard in Room E11, through Red Cross’ website using the code BlackmanHS, or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS.

Each donation you make matters. By donating blood, you can save a life. A single blood donation can help one to four people survive. This process only takes about an hour of your time, and it is well worth it. Blood donations are necessary for trauma patients undergoing surgeries, transplants, chronic illnesses, blood disorders and cancer.

Blood donations are essential during this time of fighting coronavirus. Blood that tests positive for COVID-19 antibodies can help patients currently fighting the coronavirus survive. Help prevent a blood shortage and save lives by signing up for Blackman’s Blood Drive.
