Blood drive scheduled

Cross Creek’s Beta Club is sponsoring a blood drive from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec.18  at Cross Creek. Anyone 17 or older weighing at least 110 pounds is eligible to donate. You must also have hemoglobin of 12.5 or higher. All students must have a signed permission slip to donate, regardless of age.

Students who donate blood three times in one school year could earn a red cord to wear to graduation. One unit of blood can save three local lives. All teachers and staff are eligible to donate. Family and other community members are also invited to participate.
