Seeking 45 Donors for Blood Drive at Bryant Blast

Bryant’s 4th graders study circuits, and this year, we added the circulatory system to that, thanks to Dr. Meghan Delaney, blood transfusion doctor and Bryant mom! First, 4th graders viewed and discussed videos provided by Bloodworks Northwest. Dr. Delaney and her associates then visited with 4th graders in the library, educating them about blood types and letting them experiment with non-blood!

As a result of their studies, our 4th graders have taken on a blood drive campaign, which will happen on the day of Bryant Blast, May 13. Participants are welcome to donate a pint of blood in the Bryant Library any time from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (closed for staff lunch between 1:00-2:00 PM). Questions about eligibility? Visit this link for more information.

In order to anticipate numbers, please make your  your appointment ahead of time by clicking here. Our goal is to have 45 donations. See our students’ Daily Persuasion on this page to understand how your donation helps save lives.

If you cannot donate at the BLAST, please donate at a time and location that works for you by clicking here.

Please contact Anne Aliverti if you have any questions. Thanks for joining our efforts!
