Joliet West High School will host a summer blood drive from
1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday in the school’s cafeteria.

“During the summer months, more people participate in physical outdoor activities,” Mary Spata, Joliet West teacher and blood drive coordinator, said in a news release. “While this is always encouraged, it also means there are more people injuring themselves and potentially in need of blood transfusions.”

Blood donors must be at least 16 years old and will need a signed permission form unless they at least 17 years old. Donors must also weigh more than 115 pounds and should bring an ID.

Donors are also highly encouraged to eat a good breakfast and lunch and to drink plenty of water.

Joliet West High School is located at 401 N. Larkin Ave. in Joliet.

Guests are encouraged to register online at heartlandbc.org.
