TCHS junior coordinates Red Cross blood drive

-A A +A

Hello, my name is Michael Gonterman and I’m a junior at Trimble County High School. I enjoy volunteering and helping those in need whenever I possibly can. So, I decided to coordinate the Red Cross Blood Drive. The Blood Drive will take place on Monday, April 11, 2011 from 1-5 p.m. in the Trimble County Middle School Gym.

You are eligible to donate blood if you are at least 16 years old (must have parental consent) and weigh at least 110 pounds. Remember to drink plenty of fluids that day and eat breakfast and lunch before your appointment. If you’re an athlete and you have practice or a game that day, it’s recommended that you do not give blood because you should wait at least 12 hours before resuming strenuous activity. Please talk to your coach.

To schedule an appointment call Carla Goins at (502) 255-5100, extension 2100 or via e-mail at Carla.goins@trimble.kyschools.us. For more information on donating blood, visit www.redcrossblood.org.

Thank you for your support,

Michael Gonterman
