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 or 412-967-2445.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
