Manvel High School recently held their annual Blood Drive, in association with the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center, to help promote donations of blood for patients in need.
Students must go through a multi-step process, in order to qualify to donate blood. This process includes a basic questionnaire, asking various demographic questions, and on site physical to ensure the health of all donors. The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Centers motto, “commit for life,” truly signifies what the event is all about, a partnership between the community and the blood center to help people in need today and in the future.
It’s for a good cause and my one blood donation can save two to three people,” senior Breanna Fowler said.
With students and teachers like Fowler, rallying together to donate blood, the blood center will be able to obtain its goal of saving patients’ lives.
