|Giovanna and Olivia Sabini-Leite, seniors at Franklin High School, are coordinating blood drives|
When one of the twins underwent major surgery and needed blood at the age of 12, the significance of blood donation hit home. Giovanna and Olivia have been regular blood donors at Boston Children’s Hospital since they turned 16, the legal age to donate. They were among those recently recognized by Boston Children’s Hospital for each having donated over 1 gallon of blood since that time. Today, their goal is to encourage young people like themselves to become life-long donors. Donating costs nothing but a little time, yet gives the gift of hope and life!
The first blood drive is scheduled for Friday, November 11, 2016 (Veteran's Day) at the Benjamin Franklin Charter School parking lot in Franklin. Sign up on-line at halfpints.childrenshospital.org for an appointment time, or contact Giovanna and Olivia at (508) 541-1253, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com, for more information and to sign up.
