Wildcat Nation is about to make a vampire’s dream come true.
On February 23, 2023, Ukiah High School will host a blood drive in the cafeteria from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students must be 17 years or older to donate their blood and must fill out a permission form that can be found in Student Activities.
11th grader Olivia Damian is organizing the drive and told us, “there is currently a blood shortage so it’s an easy way to give back to your community and help others.”
It is recommended that students drink plenty of fluids the day before. After giving blood, each donor will relax for 15 minutes and enjoy refreshments to recover from the donation process.
Getting blood drawn isn’t a painful process, and according to OneBlood.org, each blood donation can save up to three lives.
Don’t B negative, save a life!
