Hilltop High School, in West Unity, was alive with blood donors on October 31.
The Hilltop Cadets’ Student Council had their annual fall blood drive Friday from 11 am to 5 pm. Students and community members were ready to donate, repeat contributors and first-timers, to support the community and give life.
Student council members sponsor a community blood drive twice a year, each fall and spring, showing their support for the Red Cross’s need for donors. Students who are 16 and over can donate.
Many students there were first time donors. Jaclyn Lovejoy said, “I was nervous going in,” but she plans on doing it again.
If you missed this opportunity to donate, put the spring blood drive on the schedule and give.
To donate and find a location nearest you, contact the Red Cross at 1-800-RED CROSS (733-2767) or visit their website at redcrossblood.org. Remember, one donation can save three lives.
