Chloe Lucci ‘19: Every year Romeo high school hosts two blood drives. The first one takes place in November, and the second remains scheduled for Tuesday, February 27.
Participating in the blood drive serves as a great way to give back to your community and help people in need. Also, for those a part of the National Honors Society, donating proves as an efficient way to earn hours.
“I’m going to participate in the blood drive to help the community and help save lives,” Veranika Nicaj ‘18 said.
If you want to sign up, there is a table in the lobby, with sign up sheets and volunteers that know more about the process.
If you happen to be under the age of 17 and plan on signing up, make sure you get a parents permission first. The blood drive is held in the library, where you read a pamphlet educating yourself more on the donation process prior to donating, then the nurses test your iron level and heart rate.
People all over the world people benefit from blood donations. By donating, you provide aid in saving someone’s life.
“Even though we have not had a natural disaster recently, it’s still a good thing to do because people need blood all year round,” Kenneth Borycz ‘18 said. “Not only will you help save lives, but you will feel good that you did something selfless.”
It’s only takes 30 minutes of your day and you get an abundance of free snacks and juice. Who wouldn’t want to take this opportunity to help out the community?
So sign up today and make the world a little better, one pint at a time.
