The high school’s Interact Club worked hard to save lives through its annual blood drive on Nov. 13. The club’s efforts resulted in blood donations that could save up to 159 lives – not bad for a day’s work!

Seniors Arthur Babcock, Sarah Bernall and Aija Zamurs organized the drive and worked to ensure it ran smoothly. Aija explained that the New York Blood Center relies on blood drives, especially from high schools, to fulfill the constant blood shortages. "Donating blood is an easy way for students and community members to give back to the community and to save three lives," she said, as, according to the New York Blood Center, one donation can save three lives.

Congratulations to the Interact Club on helping to give the gift of life!
