Shoreham-Wading River High School students held a blood drive before the holidays, a time when patients’ needs remain and donations usually decline.
The high school’s National Honor Society, along with advisers Maria Lovasco and Russ Mitchinson, hosted the emergency blood drive for the New York Blood Center. They were pleased to have many staff members and students take the time to join in the life-saving efforts. Thirty-two pints of blood were donated to help during the holiday season. The students exceeded their goal with more than 40 people donating to this important cause.
