landmark school blood driveThree dozen donors rolled up their sleeves to give blood at the American Red Cross Fall Blood Drive on Thursday, November 9. The Red Cross collected 37 units of blood, up from 30 units at the spring drive. The blood has the potential to save or sustain the lives of more than 110 patients.

"Collecting that amount is a reflection of the great job that you and the student body and all who volunteered did at promoting yesterday's drive," said Dan Craig, an American Red Cross account manager.

Donors must be at least 16 years old, and an impressive number of 16-year-olds got involved and will hopefully become regular donors. Fifteen volunteers helped make the event run smoothly. The Student Council organized the event.
