‘What’s your Hashtag?’ backpack at blood drive

February 15, 2014

JAMESTOWN — The Greeneview High School National Honor Society will sponsor a Community Blood Center (CBC) blood drive at 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26 in the GHS gym, 4710 Cottonville Road.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “What’s Your Hashtag?” drawstring backpack. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment at www.DonorTime.com.

The backpack is a gift to everyone who registers to donate at a CBC high school blood drive now through the end of the school year. The Greeneview High School drive is open to community members. Visitors are asked to “buzz” at the front door for entry and to stop at the main office to receive a visitor’s pass before going to the gym.

Maintaining the community blood supply is especially challenging during the winter months. CBC asks donors to keep appointments to donate if possible, but please do not put yourself at risk if you feel uncomfortable about driving on snowy roads or going outdoors in extreme cold. The demand for blood donations never takes a snow day, so CBC reminds donors that if you miss a chance to donate, please reschedule when the weather improves.
