Olathe North Student Council is sponsoring a blood drive Monday, Nov. 5 from 8:30 am – 2:00 pm in the South Gym. Students 16 and older who meet height, weight and health requirements are eligible to donate. Signed parental consent is required for all students (see attached).
If your student is giving blood Nov. 5 have him/her follow these tips to make it a positive experience:
• Drink 8 glasses of water a day starting Nov. 4
• Eat a salty snack and get a good night’s sleep Nov. 4
• Eat a hearty breakfast/lunch before donating Nov. 5
• Bring photo ID to the blood drive (i.e. driver’s license)
Parents are encouraged to donate, too. Giving blood takes an hour and adults go to the front of the line. To make an appointment contact Student Council sponsors Robyn Eick at 913.780.7140/ firstname.lastname@example.org or Andy Caspermeyer at 913.780.7140 or email@example.com. You can also visit esavealifenow.org and type in the sponsor code Eagles to make an appointment. Walk-in donors are also welcome.
