Students sitting in the quiet zone to fill out paper forms.

Come support PIH Health by donating blood this week.

The Blood drive will be held this Tuesday, Sept. 24 and will end this Thursday, Sept. 26 at 3:30pm.

It is strongly encouraged to attend the event early, (to avoid a long line), and the time for this event will be from 9 am to 3:30 pm at the PIH mobile RV below the Business Breeze Way.

In case you need to contact someone working for the event, please contact Jasmine Lopez in Student Life and Leadership at 562-908-3427.

It is recommended that before donating blood students should be in good health, eat a nutritious meal, and drink plenty of water.

A valid I.D. is also required, and students should weigh at least 113 pounds.

Also, remember that blood can be donated every 56 days, and that anyone who is 17 (Or 16 with parental consent), can donate blood.

It is also very important to remember to not donate blood if anyone has had a tattoo or a piercing within the last 12 months.

So go ahead and take the opportunity to save someones life by donating today.
