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 for younger blood donors to show school pride and significantly help the communities in which they live. Becoming a volunteer blood donor at an early age helps establish a lifelong commitment to community service and saving lives.

PARENTS/GUARDIANS: Be sure to read the following information before printing and signing the consent form giving your minor donor permission to donate blood.

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
    • Specific height/weight criteria may apply for donors 22 years old or younger
  • Be in good general health
