Wayne Valley’s Hosts its First Blood Drive since 2020
November 14, 2022
Wayne Valley hosted its first blood drive since the pandemic. According to physical education teachers, Ms. Fellner and Ms. Larcamp, we had about 20 successful donations. Even though these numbers were lower than our past drives, it was still a big help.
Both students and staff participated. Despite some Wi-Fi troubles with the company’s registering process on the IPads, the drive went relatively well. All of the sign in and sign out times have been recorded as well as a list of volunteers each block
Hopefully during the next blood drive, more students and staff will be able to participate. One donation can save up to three lives. Maintaining diversity in the blood supply is essential. If you have Type O blood, you may want to consider donating. This blood type is often in short supply and in high demand by hospitals. Type O negative blood is the universal blood type needed for emergency transfusions and for immune deficient patients including infants.
