Cloudcroft Schools to hold blood drive September 12th
Updated on September 11, 2014
CLOUDCROFT, NM- Cloudcroft Municipal Schools will hold a blood drive Friday, Sept. 12, from noon to 6 p.m. in the high school gym located at 1 Swallow Place. "This is an opportunity for people to come and help save lives by giving back," said Molly Flotte, school nurse and blood drive coordinator. "This usually takes about an hour and one pint of blood can help as many as three people." Everyone is encouraged to donate and possibly help people in their community or servicemembers serving their country. Donors are asked to keep in mind they may be able to give blood three times in one year. Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Donors who are 16 and, in some case, 17 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian to participate. "This really gives students an opportunity to experience the pride that comes with giving back to their community," Flotte said. "Our community is so tight-knit you never know who might be receiving the benefit of your donation." According to United Blood Services, a whole blood donation can be separated into its different components and used for specific treatments for cancer or other illnesses, bleeding disorders or traumatic injury. Medical advances and modern surgical techniques have increased the need for blood. In addition, the advancing age of the Baby Boomer generation has caused stress on the blood supply. For more information on the Cloudcroft Schools Blood Drive or to sign up, please call Flotte at 575-601-4416 option 5. Additional information on the screening process or answers to general questions can be obtained by visiting the United Blood Services website at www.unitedbloodservices.org. Donors should also remember to use sponsor code: CLOUDHS when registering online.
