After the tremendous success with the blood drive back in November, LifeShare will be returning for a second round on March 16-17. As if potentially saving someone’s life isn’t enough of a reward, LifeShare also provides snacks and free t-shirts to anyone who donates. Everyone is welcome to donate as long as you sign up in the office and meet the age and weight requirements!

In the 2015 blood drive, 134 total units were collected from MHS students and staff. Although MHS did not meet the 150 unit goal, expectations for the turnout were greatly exceeded. We reached for 150 yet again in 2016, but again did not meet our goal. We managed to collect 63 on Nov. 17 and 49 on Nov. 18, or 112 pints total, which is still an impressive number, although we can definitely do better. When asked why the students of MHS should take part in the blood drive, Mrs. Woofley, school nurse, said, “I do believe that students should donate if they can. Most people that donate realize that is is not as bad as they thought it would be. It is important for young people to realize that community service is important. Blood donations are a great way to show your support for your community. It will also save lives.” The new goal is set for 150 pints again, so do your part in saving a life!
