blood drive donation

We're super proud of our students of Waynesville High school who gave selflessly of themselves this week for our semi-annual blood drive.  These students look forward to the event, taking time out of their already busy days to donate blood.

Blood cannot be manufactured EVER, and this is the ONLY way for blood banks to replenish their supplies, which are used at area hospitals, as well as for major disasters such as the devastating Hurricane Harvey.  We had a full schedule of staff and students who gave blood this week, and they should feel very proud of themselves.  

Below are the highlights!

·         47 people registered to donate

·         40 people were able to donate

·         108% of blood drive goal

·         21 First Time Donors

·         Overall, your lifesaving event saved over 120 lives!
