Deer Park High School’s Varsity Leaders Club hosted its first of three blood drives of the school year on Nov. 15, in conjunction with the New York Blood Center.
More than 125 students signed up to donate to the cause, and by the end of the day, the NYBC had collected 94 pints of blood from Deer Park’s students and faculty under the supervision of club adviser Brian Tower.
The NYBC, who award two $250 scholarships to two Deer Park seniors each spring, honored the school’s 3,500th all-time donor. Evan Mallon, the recipient of this honor, was awarded with numerous gift cards and prizes.
