Future Business Leaders of America’s Blood Drive on November 4th was a resounding success.
We collected 39 units of blood which means that our students helped to save 117 lives with their generous donations. Eric Jones and Harlea Perdue did a wonderful job of conducting the blood drive.
Only about 5% of the population donates blood, which means 100% of Americans are depending on the blood of 5% of us! This is a very scary fact when statistically 1 in 3 will need blood sometime in their life, so it is very true that the life you save may be your own. The Southeastern Community Blood Center, a division of Florida Blood Services, Inc. serves the local hospitals in our area and they depend on them for all the blood and blood products they use.
