Indiana Area Senior High School

SGA and Athena Club team up to host a blood drive


Giving blood once can save three lives. Nationwide, a person needs a unit of blood every two to three seconds. Most people will need blood at some point in their lives. 

Senior Cileigh Clemons expresses, “Giving blood is a very important thing. It’s so easy to do but too many people refuse to do it. Giving one unit of blood can save three lives, so I think it is really important to do.”

On Thursday, March 30, IHS held a blood drive. Any faculty, staff member, or students aged 16 and up could donate. The drive took place in the new gym and went from the beginning of school until the end. Students signed up for their time slot and left class to attend the blood drive.

Mrs. Sarah Juart, advisor of the Athena Club comments, I think having a blood drive is important because it helps people in our community- when you give blood- you give life. Not only does it benefit people every day, but especially when there is a disaster. It takes very little time and by donating blood you can potentially save three lives. Have a heart, Sign up, and donate- because you are ‘someone’s type’.” 

The American Red Cross thanks everyone for taking the time to donate or being willing to donate. “As a blood donor, you do something extraordinary with each donation. You give families hope. You give patients courage. And you give those who need it most, life. Donors like you make all the difference. That is why your donation for this drive is more important than ever.” 

You never know if you are going to need blood in your life. You might as well donate because, at some point, someone in your life might be in a life-threatening condition and need blood. Donate for those who need it and the possibility that you might encourage others to donate as well.
