The SHS National Honor Society held a blood drive on Wednesday, Nov. 13, supporting the American Red Cross. Their hope was to collect blood to be provided to those in need of a blood transfusions, sickle cell diseases, etc.

“NHS is all about giving back to the community, and there’s no better way than giving back to those in need,” said senior Vasilia Briegel, an NHS member. “I think this is a really good cause.”

Students signed up, with the instructions to hydrate and eat well, before the event. An appointment was assigned to these same students as they would be missing periods in their day to donate blood.

A lot of students participated, whether it was donating blood or volunteering to run the event.

“I feel really good for helping a lot of people! It doesn’t take a lot!” said senior Jessica Hall, a blood donator.

“There are so many people in the world and in our country that desperately need this blood so they can see another day,” said junior Caroline Liszweski, a blood donator.
