EHS Blood Drive

The EHS Blood Drive will take place in conjunction with Cesar Chavez Day. Last fall the blood drive team collected 199 units of blood breaking its previous record for donations. This is the largest Blood Drive in Humboldt County.  The Humboldt County Blood Bank is a key mentor for the student organizers of the Blood Drive.


Sarah Maples, Robin Smith, Autumn McGrath, and Jake Cruz are the Blood Drive’s leaders this year at Eureka High School. Students are completing this project as part of their work ion their senior project in the  EHS EAST Lab. Last fall EHS students donated 199 units of blood one short of our goal. Organizers are determined to collect 200 or more units this spring. Students sixteen years of age and older can continue to donate throughout the school day on Thursday.
