Blood Drive

Students at Sands Secondary School are organizing group appointments for blood donation at North Delta Secondary School (11447 82nd Avenue, Delta BC) on Sunday, April 2nd 2017. Students, parents, and friends that are eligible are able to book an appointment. We currently have the following times available, with volumes of 4 at a time.

  • 11am
  • 12pm
  • 1pm

More appointments will be added and updated if necessary. 

 

It takes each person about 1 hour and 15 minutes to donate. Each donor donates about 450 mL of blood. They are eligible to donate again after 56 days as that is when their iron and red blood cells are regenerated.

Please check our website to make sure that you are eligible to donate.  

Please bring valid ID (Go-Card is fine), and hydrate very well and eat something substantial before coming in to donate.

An information meeting will be held in the Library at lunch on Feb 22nd.
