I’m sure you’ve heard we’re experiencing a National blood shortage. As of today, we’re 1500 units short of meeting minimum blood supply levels in our hospitals. Recent tragedies contribute to these shortages! If an event happened in our community today, the blood donations received today, would not be available to victims until tomorrow. Blood in our hospitals does not magically show up on the shelves of our hospitals, and most of us have the ability to protect our community blood supply, by donating or asking others to donate. On Thursday NHS is hosting one of our 3 annual blood drives. If you are 16 or older and meet the minimum weight requirements please consider donating! Sign-ups start at 8:30 am and end at 2:30 pm. The sign-up sheets are located at the front desk in the main office. Please consider being a part of the solution!
