Donate blood Tuesday at Fox Chapel Area High School
Lower Valley residents can donate blood during a drive at Fox Chapel Area High School on Oct. 10.
It will be from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the large group instruction room and all people 16 and older are welcome to donate.
As part of this event, the Central Blood Bank is offering scholarships to area high school students.
High schools that host four blood drives throughout the 2017-2018 school year qualify. Scholarships will be awarded for the highest percent participation and largest number of registered donations for the year.
Four district 2017 graduates received $500 scholarships, including Elaina Graca, Alan McIvor, Jeremy Rodrigues and Philip Swigon.
Anyone who donates blood at a local donor center can specify that it count toward the district's total by mentioning code HS010025.
Walk-ins are welcome but people can register by contacting Rachel Machen, high school community outreach sponsor, at Rachel_Machen@fcasd.edu or 412-967-2445.
