National Honor Society to host fall blood drive

Next week, National Honor Society (NHS) will host its fall blood drive for Findlay High School students. The blood drive will provide a relatively easy way for students to help those in need.

“High school blood drives provide approximately 60% of the blood supply in northwest Ohio. This is a great way to give to others who are less fortunate,” counselor and NHS adviser Mary Burget said.

Student volunteers from NHS will help facilitate the process on the day of the blood drive and student volunteers from the school’s population will give blood to the Red Cross.

“The National Honors Society sponsored Blood drive will be held in the Findlay High School Auxiliary Gym, and all students who have completed the paperwork are eligible to donate blood,” NHS President Lindsay George said.

The blood drive will be held on Wednesday, October 8th during school hours. Students may sign-up at the table in the cafeteria anytime during periods 5a, 5b and 5c. They must fill out a parental consent form if they are under eighteen and will be called out of class with the permission of the teacher to give blood.

For more information, ask the volunteers in the cafeteria from periods 5a-5c or contact NHS advisers Mary Burget and Nancy Frankenfield or NHS President Lindsay George.
