Last Wednesday, around 65 Salem Hills High School students and staff participated in the blood drive sponsored by the school’s HOSA club.
The HOSA club (Health Occupation Students of America) gives students the opportunities to explore their interests in the medical field. Contributing their time and effort to the blood drive shows the students’ desire to pursue their interests in health care careers. MountainStar Services came to the school to draw blood from eager individuals.
The blood stays in the state and will be distributed to 7 hospitals in the area. One blood donation can be used to save three lives. The blood drive at the high school will supply blood to approximately 195 patients.
The HOSA club would like to express appreciation to the student body and their willingness to donate.
