The National Honor Society is  partnering with Vitalant, our area blood bank, to host two  blood drives this year. Due to restrictions of COVID-19, the drives cannot be hosted on-site, but the honor society remains committed to the mission of saving lives through blood donation The NHS will host a virtual blood drive during the week of January 18 to 23.

Members of the NHS are asking for your support at a crucial time! The need for blood products is still a daily challenge as blood donations nationally are continuing to drop and our local supply is at critical levels.  Vitalant is following all CDC and state safety protocols for the protection of all donors. Masks must be worn, temperatures are taken, sanitizing stations are present, and social distancing of six feet has been implemented.  Also, all donations are now tested for Covid-19 antibodies.
