Thanks to the students and staff who donated blood at our NHS Blood Drive before Thanksgiving break! We had many students and staff step up and give their blood to save lives of others who were in need during the Thanksgiving holiday.  There has been a nationwide shortage of blood since Hurricane Mathew, so we were able to help fill the unmet needs of patients who were in need of blood.  Thanks again for giving so selflessly!
