Alverno High School To Host Holiday Blood Drive

Alverno High School will host a Holiday Blood Drive in association with City of Hope on Friday, December 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Alverno campus.

Individuals aged 17 and older who weigh 110 pounds are encouraged to come to campus to participate in this special Holiday project organized by the Alverno Student Union and Alverno’s Campus Ministry group. Individuals who are 16 years old and weigh at least 120 pounds will be eligible to donate with a signed consent form provided by City of Hope. Every donor must present a government-issued ID card at the time of donation.

Patients at City of Hope rely on more than 37,000 units of blood a year—a demand that increases during the holiday season as donations decrease. One unit of blood could possibly save the lives of up to three people.

If you eligible to donate, please contact or (626) 355-3463 to make an appointment.

Alverno High School is located at 200 North Michillinda Avenue in Sierra Madre.
