At this time, we require both staff and donors to wear a face covering at blood drives or donation centers. Appointments are also strongly recommended.

Donating blood is an easy way to show your school pride and significantly help your community. Becoming a volunteer blood donor at an early age helps establish a lifelong commitment to save lives.

Students who are interested in blood donation must:     
  • Be at least 16 years old and have parental or guardian consent
    • 17-year-old donors do not need parental or guardian consent unless they live in these states (or their school requires it): Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Utah, Washington or Wyoming
  • Weigh at least 110 pounds
  • Be in good general health
  • Bring a consent form signed by a parent or guardian to your appointment
Parents/Guardians/Students: Please read Information and Instructions for Your Blood Donation (Spanish) and COVID-19 Antibody Testing (Spanish) prior to signing the consent form for your minor donor and before donating blood.
