The Atlantic NHS chapter has postponed the upcoming blood drive that was set to take place on Wednesday, March 18. NHS adviser Jarrod O’Donnell made the announcement on Friday, March 13. Like many other activities throughout the school and community, the blood drive was called off due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

The chapter and the Red Cross are looking to find a new date that will work in order to host a blood drive. O’Donnell said, “As soon as the Red Cross and I figure out a date to have the blood drive, I will let everyone know.”
