St. Dominic High School's National Honor Society chapter hosted a blood drive in partnership with Mercy Blood Donor Services on Friday, September 28. Sixty-three students, faculty and staff participated, donating a total of 43 units of blood.
"It's a very humbling sight to see so many people from the St. Dominic community donating their blood to save the lives of others," said National Honor Society member Madeline Stewart. "This experience has inspired me to continue donating through the years."
According to Mercy, one out of three people need donor blood at some point in their life, and one out of 10 hospital patients requires a blood transfusion. Accident victims, cancer patients, premature infants, people fighting illnesses and more benefit from blood donations.
