Albany High blood drives a sanguine success
N.Y. (May 10, 2016) -- The
results are in … Albany High School has broken previous years’ records
for pints of blood donated in a single school year!
After the May 5 blood drive, the total pints
collected in the school’s three drives was 325 – potentially saving 975
lives. That’s more than any other since the school
started doing blood drives more than 10 years ago.
(The school also held drives in October and January.)
And more good news: As a result of the great turnout
and their hard work, student blood drive coordinators Liz John and Osama
Ali each will receive a $1,250 scholarship from the Red Cross
Northeastern New York Region.
Fabulous job, Falcon students and staff!
