NHS Annual Blood Drive Was a Success

NHS Annual Blood Drive Was a Success


The annual blood drive hosted by Kenston’s National Honors Society was a success for 2021. In all, there were 83 pints of blood donated, which helped about 250 people. Amelia Witmer-Rich, along with the blood drive committee, put in time and effort to be sure it met Covid-19 guidelines. There was a hands-free temperature scanner at the check in, along with social distancing in the waiting areas and the gym. The students were provided with food and drinks both before and after their donation. The American Red Cross was very pleased with the positive outcome of this blood drive and excited for next year. The blood drive next year is scheduled more towards the end of March, but is not final yet. Overall, the hard work put into this event definitely payed off and helped many people’s lives.
