NDB student Lauren Fitzgerald has her blood drawn at the school-wide blood drive in April of 2022.

On February 14, NDB will host its annual blood drive. All NDB community members are invited to donate their blood to the Stanford Blood Center. The blood drive will be hosted in the Small Gym where donors will get their blood drawn. Spiritual Life Teacher David Muir and NDB’s California Scholarship Federation (CSF) board have worked together to plan and promote the event.

Potential donors must fulfill the eligibility requirements. Donors must either be at least 17 years old or 16 with a signed consent form, meaning the majority of student donors will be upperclassmen. Similarly, those under 18 must also satisfy height and weight requirements and all donors should be in a current healthy status with a clean medical history. Alumni, parents and staffulty are also invited to donate their blood.

Muir’s leadership has made the event and its planning possible, and he coordinated it because the cause is important to him.

“I have a background in nursing. I’ve heard many stories throughout my life about people needing blood donation due to accidents or through surgeries,” said Muir. “And I knew that it’s an important thing to do. Blood is life.”

All are encouraged to donate blood and donors will receive a coupon for a pint of Baskin-Robbins ice cream and See’s Candies.
