About Giving Blood

  • Students giving blood must bring a photo ID
  • The entire procedure takes about 45 minutes; the actual giving time is usually less than 10 minutes
  • It's important - 95% of the population will need a blood transfusion at least once in their lives but only 5% donate blood!

Appointments are scheduled in increments between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Click here to schedule an appointment or listen for morning announcements about making appointments at school. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome. e-mail Ms. Schwed with questions.
