Blood drive

The annual Tyrone High School Red Cross Fall Blood Drive will take place on Wednesday, October 5th from 8:30 am to 2 pm in the high school gymnasium.

The blood drive is sponsored by Tyrone’s HOSA Club. Eligable students can sign up for the blood drive in all lunch periods this week.

Giving blood is important because you could be saving someone’s life and helping them in situations where they would need a blood transfusion. Also, you get out of class, so it’s a win-win!”
