A new age group may now donate blood, and the local American Red Cross hopes they’ll come out to a blood drive at Lancaster High School on Saturday.

The drive is being sponsored by LHS Civinettes group. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the LHS cafeteria.

LHS students who are 16 may now donate blood with parental consent. Ages 17 and up do not require parental permission. Every donor must weigh at least 110 pounds.

“We want them (teenagers) to start giving blood,” said Lancaster Red Cross director Gina Amato.
