On Tuesday, September 30th, the Briggs Center for Civic Engagement was transformed to host the American Red Cross Blood Drive. Health teacher, Eileen Ferrari, and her eager 10th Grade Health students oversaw the organization, scheduling and care of the donors throughout the day. Here is the summary of information shared with us after the drive by Karin Kaiser of the American Red Cross:
Presenting donors: 24
First-time donors: 11
Whole blood units collected: 19
Total units collected: 19
The American Red Cross shared with Ms. Ferrari that the 19 blood donations that were collected will go to help 57 patients.
A huge thanks to all who helped coordinate and who donated. “The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give blood.”
