NHS Blood Drive

The National Honor Society/Student Council will be hosting a community blood drive at the Calallen Walmart Parking Lot on February 13th from 9-3. We are hoping by then that we are able to recruit donors at the front door like we used to. There will still be a sign up via online and the traditional free t-shirt and coupons will be given to each donor. In addition, each donor will receive a free box of Girl Scout Cookies of their choice. Hopefully, those seniors still needing donors for their Gift of Life chords will be able to donate/find donors at this time to fulfill their requirements. To sign up visit: http://bit.ly/2YzsXrf
