NHS/Class of 2016 Blood Drive

On Saturday, January 23rd, the Class of 2016 and the National Honor Society sponsored the annual Red Cross Blood Drive.  The Red Cross collected 34 units of whole blood and three units of double reds.  That made a grand total of 40 units of blood.  Our goal was 25 units.  The Senior Class and the Honor Society would like to thank all the students, staff, and community members who donated. Each unit of whole blood can save three lives and each double red can help two people; therefore, our community potentially saved 108 lives (102 from the whole blood and six from the double reds). The drawing for the gas cards will be Monday, February 8th after the Super Bowl 50 game. Give blood; save a life or two or three!
