The Atlantic NHS chapter will be hosting their second blood drive of the year on Wednesday, March 18 in the high school gym. Individuals can begin donating at 7:30 a.m. The Red Cross will close up shop at 1:00 p.m.

Walk-ins are welcome from the high school, as well as from the community. Anyone who wishes to donate is encouraged to help out, as the Red Cross currently has a shortage of blood.

Those that wish to lock in their donation time can contact NHS President Reagan Pellett, NHS adviser Jarrod O’Donnell, or visit www.redcrossblood.org. Those that register online need to insert the code “AtlanticHS” to make an appointment.
