Polo High School students to host blood drive on Feb. 25

Polo High School Student Council will sponsor a blood drive on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the High School Gym at 100 S. Union Ave. in Polo.

Polo High School Student Council is encouraging community members to join them in donating blood as a part of regularly scheduled routine appointments.

Donors can schedule donations for the entire year. Every time a donor comes in to donate this leap year, they can help improve the lives of patients and their families who rely on their generosity seven days a week, 366 days a year.

In addition to saving lives, the Red Cross matches PCHS donations with scholarship funds distributed to our students so each donation has double the positive impact in the Polo community and beyond.

If you can’t make the Feb. 25 date, mark your calendar for the next PCHS sponsored blood drive on April 30.

Donors may call 946-3314 or go to the American Red Cross website to make an appointment. Walk in donors are also welcome.
