IMG_9857On Thursday, APRIL 9, Mount Vernon will host its annual Blood Drive, beginning at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 1:00 p.m. in the Glenn Campus Art Gallery. As the need for blood donations continues to increase, we encourage our student (16 years and older), parent and church community to donate.
The link to sign up is here.
After clicking on the sign-up link, click in the upper, right hand corner “Schedule a new appointment.” You will then register as a new user in order to view the times available and schedule your appointment.
Alternatively, you can email Harrison Jones, President of the National Honors Society at [email protected], and he will manually enter you into the appointment database. Please send an appropriate email consisting of your legal name and desired time of appointment.
IMG_9867Once you have signed up, arrive in the Glenn Campus Gym with a photo ID approximately 20 minutes before your scheduled sign up. Two days prior, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Eat a hearty breakfast the morning of, and thank you for signing up.
We hope our community will help fulfill our goal of 66 pints of blood. The city of Atlanta is in need for blood donations. The Red Cross receives 20% of blood donations from high schools during the school year. Donating blood is a great avenue to tangibly impact the local community. The National Honor Society is sponsoring the 2015 Blood Drive.
