Brandon Valley High School is hosting a community blood drive on Wednesday, April 24 and Thursday, April from 8:00 am to 11:00 am and 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm (both days). All blood donations will stay local for local use. All who donate will receive a thank you t-shirt.
The public is encouraged to come in, donate blood. Community Blood Bank supplies over 550 units of blood each week to people in the local area. Among those who benefit from donated blood are trauma and burn victims, cancer patients and persons undergoing surgery. Donating blood is a simple way to save patients’ lives in the community. Without volunteer blood donors donating blood throughout the summer, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain an adequate supply of blood for community hospitals.
Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent consent form), weigh 110 lbs or more and be in good general health. It is recommended that a person eat and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating blood. Please bring an ID with you at the time of donation.

Community Blood Bank is not affiliated with other blood bank organizations and takes pride in being a self-sufficient organization, thanks to the generosity of our local blood donors.
