You Don't have to wear a Cape to be a Hero

2019 Spring Blood Drive 

 

  

     The Fountain Fort Carson High School JROTC program and Bonfils Blood Center are partnering up again this year to host the annual Blood Drive, on 24th and 25th of April in the small gym from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm each day.

 

     To donate blood or platelets, you must be in good general health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be at least 16 years old. Parental consent is required for blood donation by 16 year olds; 16 year olds are NOT eligible to donate platelets. No parental consent is required for those who are above 18 years of age. Parental forms can be picked up in room C254. * Note: Healthy means that you feel well and can perform normal activities. If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, healthy also means that you are being treated and the condition is under control. If you are not feeling well on the day of your donation, please contact us to reschedule.

 An ID is required to on the day of donation. Examples of ID include school ID, driver’s license, military ID, etc…

 

     To ensure the safety of blood donation for both donors and recipients, all volunteer blood donors must be evaluated to determine their eligibility to give blood. The final determination will be made on the day of the donation at the blood drive. If you were deferred from donating in the past, you may be able to donate again.  

It is imperative that prior to your donation, you eat within 2 hours and hydrate for 24-48 hours so donation process is smooth and you feel better during the process.

 To reserve a time slot, please contact, by email, SGM Herbert Maison(hmaison@ffc8.org) to reserve a time.

 

AFTER DONATING:

·         Donating blood leads to a temporary decrease in the volume of oxygen-carrying red blood cells so strenuous activity after donating blood can lead to side effects like light headedness or dizziness.

·         Do not engage in strenuous activities such as lifting, running, pushing or picking up heavy objects for a least 4-5 hours after donating blood.

·         If you have sports practice or a game on the day of the blood drive, we recommend you do not practice or play or if you are required to practice or play that you do not donate blood.

·         It is important to rest in our canteen area, have a snack, and re-hydrate so your body will have additional energy to compensate for your donation.

 

 

We encourage you all to sign up and donate. Please join the FFCHS JROTC program in helping the community. We hope to see you there.
