Students at DeForest Area High School, with the help of the American Red Cross, will be hosting their bi-annual blood drive on Monday, October 17th from 9 am until 2 pm. The event will take place in the high school’s North Gym. All members of the community are invited to donate.
To donate blood, a few requirements need to be met: donors are asked to bring their social security card, donor card or two other forms of identification and eat a well-balanced breakfast. Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh more than 100 pounds, and be in good health. Those interested in donating may either show up during the allotted time or call to set up an appointment. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact Kristin Pachal, 842-6837.
