“Transform a life, and your own,” is the tagline that Vitalant, formerly United Blood Services, uses to bring in donors. The Lake Park-Audubon National Honor Society accepted that challenge and hosted their bi-annual Fall Blood Drive on Friday, Nov. 21, in the LP-A High School Theater.
Over 40 people registered to donate during the blood drive, which resulted in 38 units of lifesaving blood, double red cells, RBC plasma, and plasma from the Lake Park-Audubon community. Among those who volunteered to participate, 15 were first time donors.
"Thanks again for reserving the location, helping to recruit volunteers and donors and letting them know how important it is to donate," said Jenna Steen, Vitalant donor recruitment representative. "We would not be able to save lives without you or your students. ”
LP-A's National Honor Society plans to sponsor another blood drive in the spring of 2020.
