FCAHS to Hold Blood Drive During the Month of February

Fox Chapel Area High School is holding a community blood drive. The drive will be held throughout the month of February at the Vitalant Harmar/Fox Chapel Donor Center and all people 16 and older are encouraged to donate blood.

Additionally, Vitalant is, once again, offering several scholarships to area high school students. To qualify for these scholarships, Fox Chapel Area High School is hosting blood drives throughout the 2020-2021 school year. The scholarships will be awarded for the highest percent participation and the largest number of registered donations for the year. Additionally, anyone who donates blood at a local donor center can also ask for the donation to count toward Fox Chapel Area High School’s total any time throughout the year. Just specify for the donation to count toward Fox Chapel Area High School (code HS010025). 

If you are interested in donating blood for the drive, call 1-866-366-6771, and tell them you are donating for the Fox Chapel Area High School drive by giving the school’s group code – HS010025.

Vitalant is also testing blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. Results can be viewed online in the donor’s account two weeks after donating. 

Fox Chapel Area High School’s blood drive is being coordinated by the community outreach committee of the Fox Chapel Area High School Student Government.]

The Vitalant Harmar/Fox Chapel Donor Center is located at 2585 Freeport Road, Suite 207, Pittsburgh, PA 15238.
