Darke County, Ohio – Franklin Monroe High School National Honor Society invites students, faculty, and the community to schedule an appointment to make a difference in someone’s life by donating blood. The blood drive will be held at Franklin Monroe High School in the old cafeteria on, Friday March 30, 2012, from 9:00 am until noon.

We need your help to reach our goal to collect 30 donations. When you donate one pint of blood you have the potential to save up to 3 lives! This one blood drive has the potential to make a difference in nearly 100 lives or more.

Students who register to donate will receive a specially designed High School T-shirt.

The “Catch the Wave” tumblers will be available to anyone from the community who registers to donate blood at this drive.

Technology is making it faster and more convenient than ever to schedule your next blood donation. Just use your computer or smart phone to make an appointment online at You can also schedule your next appointment using your mobile device to scan the DonorTime QR code.
