Blood Drive

From Donating Turkeys to Donating Blood

Did you know that blood donations reach a low during the Thanksgiving holiday season? That’s one of the many reasons why the MICDS Health Club hosted their blood drive last week with Mercy Hospital. In addition to giving thanks last week (and donating turkeys), the MICDS community came together to donate blood.

For four hours, McDonnell Gymnasium transformed into a donation center. MICDS students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents had the opportunity to donate blood to help save the lives of others. Over 30 units of blood were collected during the drive. Thank you to all who came to donate!
