Lyman Moore Middle School eighth-graders are hosting their annual American Red Cross blood drive at the school as the culminating event of a service-learning unit. The date will be Thursday, Feb. 4, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The drive, to be held in the Lyman Moore Cafeteria, is open to the public. “If you are able to donate, please reserve February 4th to donate here at Moore,” said science teacher Rob Miller. He also encouraged Portland Public Schools’ staff to participate. “It means a lot to the students to see staff members donating,” he said. Donors are asked to please bring photo I.D.

“The Red Cross has learned that our drives have large numbers and few no-shows, so they are bringing additional beds and staff to make the process move as quickly as possible,” Miller said.

Appointments can be made by calling the school at  (207) 874-8150, or the Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS or by going online at redcrossblood.org.
