According to the American Red Cross every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood and more than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day. These statistics are just a few of the reasons the Varsity Club at Plymouth High School continues the annual tradition to host a blood drive each year at the High School.
Students 16 years of age, had to have a completed permission slip on file in order to donate. In preparation for this week’s American Red Cross blood drive, student donors kept hydrated and were told not to skip any meals leading up to their blood donation on Wednesday that took place from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the multipurpose room.
