You can transform a life, and your own, when you become a blood hero. Join Bosque School and United Blood Services for the Annual Bosque Blood Drive. Donors ages 16 (with parent permission) and up can participate in this ultimate pay-it-forward gift! The goal is 30 donations this year; this opportunity is open to the entire Bosque community.
“It is very fulfilling to donate blood, as it helps the Albuquerque community in a very concrete way,” said Grace ‘19, Medical Reserve Corps leader. Bosque’s MRC is hosting the drive.
WHEN: Thursday, February 21, 2019 from 9:00 am–1:00 pm
WHERE: In the “Bloodmobile,” which will be parked in the cul-de-sac behind the gym and staffed with professionals from United Blood Services equipped to draw blood.
WHO: Anyone in the Bosque community over 16*
WHY: To provide Bosque School with an opportunity to give back to the community in a meaningful way. Blood donations provide a crucial component to the medical care given in Albuquerque. Donations only take about 30 minutes, and you don't even have to leave school to do it!
*Students 16 and older with a signed minor donor form, faculty, staff, and parents are invited. Any students under the age of 18 must complete a Minor Donor Permit. It must be signed by a parent or guardian and brought to your appointment. Without this permit, you will not be able to donate blood.
