The JROTC department at Pompano Beach High School hosted their first quarterly blood drive of the 2018-2019 school year yesterday. Employees from One Blood will be returning today, Sept. 18, to facilitate more donations.

Students have the option to donate blood and some may qualify for platelet donation. It takes roughly 20 minutes for a student to give blood and an hour for a platelet donation. Students under the age of 17 must have a parental consent form turned in before or on the day of donation. Students should donate during study hall, senior privilege or a free period and will receive snacks, pizza and a t-shirt for their participation.
