On Wednesday, Oct. 2, the Red Cross hosted another blood drive, the first of this school year. As usual, our Warriors gladly participated—not just students but also six teachers.
A total of 31 pints of blood were donated, including one “power red” (the giving of red blood cells).
“Overall, the Red Cross was impressed with the turnout,” said Student Council advisor and teacher Ms. Sarah Sutton. “They thought Pueblo was very nice and respectful and were very generous.”
One student who gave blood, junior Damian Garcia, was one of the 25 students who donated.
“I’m glad that I could make a difference,” Garcia said, “and I loved how helpful and friendly the Red Cross was.”
According to Sutton, the next scheduled blood drive will be later this semester, although a date has not yet been determined.
