The American Red Cross requested that we host an additional blood drive this year due to the supply levels in our area. Traditionally East Knox High School hosts three blood drives - fall, winter and spring. The senior class has been very active organizing, manning and promoting past events. This time we were blessed to have the support of the Bladensburg Sertoma Club and the East Knox Lions Club. Each organization sent members to staff the event and to help spread the word. It was great to see the two service clubs working together for the greater good of our community. Many teachers, students and community members made appointments and waited patiently to donate. Each donor received and free t-shirt and was registered to win a $1,000 shoping spree at the Easton Mall. When it was all said and done the community donated 33 units of blood exceeding the goal of 31.
