United Blood Services is in Sheridan through Wednesday, and this time it's for a good-natured rivalry called the High School Blood Donor Challenge. Sheridan Media's Mary Jo Johnson with the story.

Mike Frigon is the Sr. Donor Recruitment Rep for United Blood Services out of Billings. He says that they have been very busy already and only one day has passed since this particular challenge began. The change of venue to the old Woodland Park School doesn't seem to have hindered their efforts, either.

The Sheridan High School students and staff will be rolling up their sleeves for their challenge Wednesday, touting the motto “Broncs Bleed Blue”. This challenge is against Campbell County High School in Gillette. For students who are at least sixteen, have considered donating but maybe have some jitters, Frigon says it's no big deal.

While walk-ins are welcome to the Woodland Park School today, appointments are filled, and of course they have priority. However, he says.

Frigon indicates that the United Blood Services crew will be back for another community blood drive, most likely sometime in late March.
