24 people volunteered to donate

JSSP Blood Drive

Jamestown High School hosted a blood drive with Vitalant on Nov. 3 at the school, which collected 22 units of blood products for patients in need.

Twenty-four individuals volunteered to donate blood, and 19 individuals were able to donate at the blood drive. Three donors donated Power Red Cells (2RBC), where two units of red blood cells are collected while returning platelets, plasma and a saline solution to the donor. Seven people volunteered for the first time.

Vitalant expressed its gratitude to Ken Gardner, who coordinated the drive, the Jamestown High School Student Council which sponsored the blood drive, and JHS.
