On Friday, October 2nd, we will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive as a kick off for our Dig Pink weekend! The drive will be in the UFCA Gym from 9:00am-1:30pm. Our goal is to get 45 people to sign up to donate. We are also allowing students to donate, if they meet the Blood_Donation_Requirements. Donors must be at least 16 years of age, with the specified height and weight requirements.
The Red Cross requires Parental_Consent_for_Blood_Donation for any 16 year old student wanting to donate.
We encourage you to sign up to donate using the following instructions:
Go to www.redcrossblood.org
- Enter our sponsor code: UFCA, in the upper right hand box labelled “Find a Blood Drive.”
- Select “United Faith Christian Academy” when it comes up.
- Select the time you would like to donate. There will be two options at some time slots: “Blood” and “Double Red Cells”. Please note for the Double Red Cell donations, the height and weight requirements are different (males 5’1 and 130+ lbs; females 5’5 and 150+ lbs.).
