This Friday, March 10, CVU will be hosting our annual blood drive. The drive is from 8:00-2:00 and anyone over 16 can donate blood*. Our goal is to reach 150 donations this year and we need everyone's help. Student Council is signing students up during lunch. The process takes about an hour but most of the time is a mini-physical, a health questionnaire, and recovery time. The actual donation only takes about 10 minutes and it is not painful. A single blood donation can save up to three lives. This year the Red Cross has committed additional staff members for this drive to reduce lines. As thank you for donating all donors will receive a coupon for a free pint of Ben and Jerry's!!!

there are many factors
other then age that effect whether one is able to donate blood. Height/weight requirements
are often the biggest challenge for high school donors.
