HOSA Hosts Blood Drive On Campus: April 12

The Future Health Professionals (HOSA) high school club has partnered with OneBlood to host a blood drive on Wednesday, April 12, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. All eligible students and parents are encouraged to donate. There will be two Big Red Buses in the high school circle collecting whole blood and platelet donations.
Students can sign-up on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 4-5, during their social studies class. Students will receive a parent consent form when they register. Additional consent forms are available HERE. Students must be at least 16 to participate. Additionally:
  • Students who are 16 need a signed parent consent form at every donation, even if they’ve donated before.
  • Students who are 17 need an ID and a signed parent consent form. This form will be valid for all remaining drives during this school year.
  • Students who are 18 need an ID, but are not required to submit a parent consent form.
Parent consent forms must be returned to the high school office no later than April 11 in order to donate. 
While Westminster will remain a closed campus during the blood drive, parents are encouraged to participate. 
To ensure the best experience possible:
  • Bring identification.
  • Drink an extra 16 ounces of water or non-caffeinated fluids before the donation.
  • Eat a healthy meal before the donation. Avoid overly fatty foods like hamburgers, fries, or ice cream.
  • Get a good night’s sleep the night before.
  • Avoid aspirin or aspirin containing medications at least two days before donating.
  • Take the time to enjoy a snack and a drink in the refreshment area immediately after donating.
Thank you so much for participating in this lifesaving partnership!
