High School Students Help Red Cross With Blood Shortage

Posted:
Local high school students looking to make a difference in the lives of others did so today by giving blood.

Seton Catholic students over the age of 16 were able to donate blood during a Red Cross blood drive hosted by the school. According to Red Cross representatives over a thousand units of blood have been uncollected due to the weather, making new donations that much more important.

Seton Senior Granville Moore organized the drive enlisting the help of his peers and the community to answer the urgent demand for blood in our area.

Senior Granville Moore says, "It's a great feeling to see my friends and peers help in what I've been doing for a long time because they understand, they have the same feeling I have. How important it is to donate blood and that the need is there and that it's an easy way to help."

Theresa Blank says, "There's no substitute for blood. There's no other way to help hospital patients so it's the perfect thing to do for someone else, to think of others."

Anyone interested in donating blood should call the Red Cross line at
1-800-733-2767 or visit the American Red Cross website for location of upcoming blood drives.
