Blood is made up of four main components; Red blood cells, platelets, plasma and white blood cells. Each whole blood donation has the potential to save up to three lives. Deerfield Beach High’s students can let their Buck Pride show by letting their blood type lead the way to share a powerful lifesaving gift.
The annual DBHS blood drive is here with Class of 2017 hosting it in the gym all day Thursday, November 3rd. OneBlood will be here to draw Deerfield Beach’s blood. Anyone interested in being a donor must be 16 years old and older and must sign up with Mr. Box in guidance.
