Blood drive set for Dec. 3

GHHS will host a blood drive on Dec. 3 during all hours. Sign ups will take place during all lunches on Thursday, Nov. 21, Friday, Nov. 22, Monday, Nov. 25 and Tuesday, Nov. 26. 

“Thee overall hope is that kids will get involved with it,” teacher Todd Diederichsen said. “And realize they can help someone and become lifelong donors.”

Participants who are 17 and older can sign up freely, but those who are 16 need to have a permission slip signed by a parent/guardian..

“They say that one person’s donation can help three other people,” Diederichsen said.

Senior Emily Stevenson gives blood. Although many people are wary of needles and blood, most students assure that the pinch was better than expected.
