The Kempner High School Spring Blood Drive will take place all day on Friday, March 30, in the Kempner auditorium. With the continued support of principal, Dr. Anthony Indelicato, the drive has consistently harvested more units of blood each year, making it the most successful day drive in Fort Bend County.
Kempner Health Science Technology program, under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Ricken, has been nationally recognized for its tremendous support for St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital’s blood bank. President Obama authorized the Silver Eagle Award to KHS HST program, the highest civilian honor for community service. We are proud to share that the students participating in the KHS HST program spend 200 hours a year in our local hospitals in the Memorial Hermann system observing all phases of medical care from ER’s to OR’s.
All adults are welcome to participate in the blood drive. This year, refreshments will be provided courtesy of a grant from the Meadows Foundation in Dallas, donors will receive a free St. Luke’s blood drive t shirts, there is no wait for adults, and free blood tests with results will be provided to those donating this life saving gift. KHS HST would like to thank our staff, families, sponsors and the community for supporting our efforts in this life saving endeavor.
For more information about participation in this year’s drive, please contact Dr. Jeff Ricken at 281 634-2414.
