Brashier’s Blood Drive is a Success
It can be difficult to convince students that it’s a good idea to have a needle stuck in their arm when they don’t have to. But, Brashier students, their parents, and even some siblings were willing to help the community and donate blood at the Brashier Middle College Blood Drive on October 31. More so, actually, than the school had originally hoped for.
The goal for the blood drive was to obtain at least 54 units of blood, and Brashier surpassed that goal with 61 units. Depending on the outcome of the Brashier’s second blood drive held in the spring, there is a possibility that the school will win one thousand dollars for the second year in a row. However, the winner will not be announced until the end of the school year. Global Studies and Leadership teacher at Brashier Chantee Cruell felt that the event ran smoothly and went according to plan. She was excited about the outcome and the willingness of students to donate.
“The blood drive was just another part of community service that Brashier does. It helped to educate the students involved about the importance of giving blood and helping those in need. Overall, the drive was excellent, and I was very excited to pass our goal.”
