Blood Drive Tuesday March 13

Isabella Milone, News Editor

The GHS blood drive is Tuesday, March 13 from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the gym.  Please give and help save a life.

The American Red Cross is partnering with HBO on the “Bleed for the Throne” promotion, the  marketing campaign called #ForTheThrone. All presenting donors will receive a t-shirt (while supplies last) and all donors 18 or older will automatically be entered for a chance to win one of 5 trips to the season 8 world premiere of Game of Thrones. Trip includes travel for two, up to two nights hotel accommodations and a $250 gift card for expenses.

You can sign up at lunch or in Mrs. Lewis’ room.


  • Anyone 16 and up can give.  If you are 16 you will need a signed parent permission form each time – you can give these to Mrs. Lewis ahead of time or bring them with you the day of the drive.
  • You need your driver’s license OR your blood donor card.
  • Please remember to eat a good breakfast and lunch and to drink extra fluids.  We don’t want you getting sick or passing out!
  • We would like to keep our double red machines busy all day.  If you are type O-, O+, A- or B- we’d love for you to sign up to give doubles.
  • You can speed things up by going to and answering the questions ahead of time.  This has to be done the day of the drive. You can’t do it the night before.  Now you can do it from your phone!
  • There is an app for your phone that contains your donor card and all of your information.  Workers can scan it for your information. It also keeps track of how many times you’ve donated and also allows you to make appointments.  Look for the blood drop symbol in the app store.
  • If you gave doubles at our last drive you won’t be able to give at this one.  Thank you for your previous donation!
