    PR Spring Blood Drive Update - Help Others & Raise Scholarship Dollars for Students!
    Due to COVID-19, Pine-Richland's Spring Blood Drive was cancelled. However, there is still an opportunity to donate blood, and now is a more important time than ever.
    The virus has caused nationwide blood shortages as blood drives have been cancelled everywhere. It remains critical for healthy, eligible Americans to donate blood. Vitalant has taken extreme steps to ensure the safety of donation and prevent the spread of infection. See Vitalant's FAQs.
    Many people are looking for ways to help their community during this difficult time. Fortunately, there are many donation centers in Allegheny County where people can safely donate using our PINE-RICHLAND GROUP CODE HS010058 to raise scholarship money for our students. Please schedule your appointment at Vitalant.org.
