Due to COVID restrictions, the Luter YMCA graciously agreed to host the drive. Cadets collaborated with the American Red Cross and the YMCA personnel to prepare and execute the drive. The drive resulted in 44 pints of blood being collected, which equates to 132 potential lives being saved. We would like to formally thank all the community members who took time out of their day to come and donate at the drive! The next drive is scheduled for Wednesday, February 24. Please mark your calendars, so we can save more lives and maintain our status as the number one high school blood drive in Virginia. Go Packers!
