Star Wars Blood Drive
Once a year AVID students take over the gym with the American Red Cross and set up a massive and fun Star Wars themed blood drive so family, friends and staff can come donate blood. Star Wars characters from the 501st hang out. The students who get the most donors earn Star Wars t-shirts and prizes from Panda Express, the official food of the Jedi Order. We provide lunch for the blood donors, hold a student Star Wars Cake contest, and the 501st gives guest presentations in classrooms. As of this year, the drive has collected over 550 pints of blood. If you are interested in donating please visit the American Red Cross website at www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code: piute or send an email to email@example.com to schedule a time.
