Give Something That Means Something This December: Donate Blood!

 

Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages -- accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. 

To help meet that need, Sacred Heart will close out 2020 by hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, December 30, from 9:00am until 2:00pm in the gym. In general, donors must ..

  • Be in good general health and feeling well.
  • Be at least 17 years old.
  • Weigh at least 110 pounds. Additional height and weight requirements apply for donors 18 years old and younger and all high school student donors.
  • Have not donated blood in the last 56 days.

Donors at the December drive will receive a free, long-sleeved t-shirt (while supplies last). All donors will be screened for COVID-19 antibodies.

Registration for the SHA Blood Drive is now open. You can make your appointment by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or by visiting RedCrossBlood.org. The sponsor code is sacredheartacademy.
