ROTC hosts blood drive on Sept. 9

The upcoming annual blood drive will be held this Thursday, Sept. 9. It is overseen, coordinated and sponsored by JROTC program and the blood donation organization, One Blood. The main purpose is to help save lives by providing blood to patients who need it. 

“Every two seconds of every day, someone needs blood,” Chief Enrius Collazo said. “Since blood cannot be manufactured outside the body and has a limited shelf life, the supply must constantly be replenished by generous blood donors.”

ROTC is asking all those willing to donate to take precautionary measures against COVID-19, such as wearing a mask and cleaning their hands after. Students ages  16 and 17 can register with parental permission during their assigned lunches or with QR codes located around campus.
