To make a difference and save people’s lives, students 16 and older donated blood at a Blood Drive on Dec. 11 in the cafetorium.

Roughly 60 students donated blood, which is less than the number from previous years.

“I heard that students didn’t know about it,” said Emylyn Tanglao, ASB Vice President.

In order to set up this event, preparation began a week prior the donation day. The ASB members were to hand out donation forms and to get people aware of the event.

The forms were due on Dec. 8; however, students 18 and older were able to have walk in. Because they are no longer minors, and having full responsibility of his or herself.

The donated blood will go to a national database and from there go to hospitals where it is needed. Most of the blood will go to San Diego hospitals, but some may go to other hospitals in Southern California.

“Donating blood will help save lives and help those in need of a blood transfusion or anything more if they’ve been in an accident,”Tanglao said.
