FFCHS JROTC Hosting Blood Drive

 

April 11, 2018



The Fountain Fort Carson High School JROTC program and Bonfils Blood Center are partnering up again this year to host the annual Blood Drive, April 25-26 in the small gym from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

To donate blood or platelets, you must be in good general health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be at least 16 years old. Parental consent is required for blood donation by 16 year olds; 16 year olds are NOT eligible to donate platelets. No parental consent is required for those who are above 18 years of age. Parental forms can be picked up in room C254. * Note: Healthy means that you feel well and can perform normal activities. If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, healthy also means that you are being treated and the condition is under control. If you are not feeling well on the day of your donation, please contact us to reschedule.

An ID is required on the day of donation. Examples of ID include school ID, driver’s license, military ID, etc…

To ensure the safety of blood donation for both donors and recipients, all volunteer blood donors must be evaluated to determine their eligibility to give blood. The final determination will be made on the day of the donation at the blood drive. If you were deferred from donating in the past, you may be able to donate again.  

It is imperative that prior to your donation, you eat within 2 hours and hydrate for 24-48 hours so donation process is smooth and you feel better during the process.

 To reserve a time slot, please contact, by email, SGM Herb Maison(hmaison@ffc8.org) to reserve a time.
