Donations are very vital and useful as every two seconds somebody in the United States needs blood. Therefore, Student Council members are recruiting students to donate and give their time to help others. The goal is 51 donations. Sophomore Dresden Wilson is donating blood for the first time and says, “ I’m a little nervous because it’s my first time, but it’s for a good cause so that eases me down.”
This year’s blood drive will be held in the chorus room, student council members will be volunteering their time to help set up the drive. National Honor Society members will also be helping with everything throughout the day, Life Blood Center is the company that is holding this event.
The blood drive is a big event at Boone High School, Megan Mcintyre, the staff advisor of Student Council, says, “Student Council feels that blood donation is extremely important, as one in seven people entering a hospital need blood and one pint of whole blood-the most common form of donation-can save up to three lives. Student Council also feels it is important to provide students with a convenient opportunity to donate”
This event is very beneficial and helps save lives for those in need, the blood drive will start at 8:00 am and go on to 2:00 pm in the chorus room on Tuesday, November 10th.
