Red Cross Club Prepares for Upcoming Blood Drive
Red Cross Club members Julie Huynh, Erin Liedtke and Grace Oh-Willeke visited Bonfils on January 31st to learn about the process of blood donation. Grace reflected, “It’s amazing how important blood donation is. A single whole blood donation can save up to three lives! We heard from a cancer patient who received multiple life saving platelet transfusions.” In addition to walking through a mock blood drive, students toured the facility, met with employees, and collaborated with students from other schools around Colorado. Erin recalls, “I’m interested in going into a medical career. Visiting Bonfils revealed yet another side to the health care system.”
Julie, Erin, and Grace, along with the entire Red Cross Club, will be hosting a school wide blood drive on March 7, 2017. Save the date!
