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.

β€œI encourage people to donate blood,” student representative Allison Yancey said. β€œIt helps save lives, and you never know what kind of impact it may have.”
