Blood Drive a Huge Success

You may know know that each donation during the drive can save three local lives, but you may not know that the EHS family will save 411 lives!  Donors gave one whole pint of blood to the cause.  The whole process takes about one  hour from start to finish, including refueling afterward to avoid becoming faint.  Needles, blood, and donating can be very scary, but according to the nurses, a paper cut or splinter is more painful than donating!  You also get a free t-shirt and biscuit to sweeten the deal.  If you missed out this time, you can join in on the fun on March 27.  Just remember to avoid caffeine and eat lots of protein the morning before!
