Lutheran High of Sioux Falls Students To Give Blood, Raise Funds, With Red Cross
SIOUX FALLS – Students at Lutheran High School of Sioux Falls are taking learning beyond their science text books with the help of the Red Cross.
Today the Red Cross taught students about blood types, and their importance for blood donations, but they have a chance to see the lesson in action when the high school hosts a blood drive next Friday.
The Red Cross will donate $250 if more than 35 pints of blood are given and that number grows with the number of donations.
Jennifer Ross, Executive Director of the Red Cross’s Eastern South Dakota branch, says its important to get young people comfortable with the donation process.
“We want to connect young people with their ability to give blood, because every time they make a donation they’re saving up to three lives. and we want them to be comfortable with that process and also understand that the lessons that they’re learning now in that text book and in their science class makes a difference in the real world,” Jennifer Ross with American Red Cross.
The public is invited to participate in the blood drive at the high school.
