Texas High will be hosting a LifeShare Blood Drive Sept. 18 and 19 from 8:30 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. in the gym. Sign up will be open in the cafeteria during all lunches. Everyone 16 years and older are encouraged to donate, but students that are 16 require a signed permission slip by a parent or legal guardian which will be given at sign up. Photo identification is required at the time of donation to be eligible.

“I encourage people to donate blood,” student representative Allison Yancey said. “It helps save lives, and you never know what kind of impact it may have.”
