McNary’s blood drive was a pretty big success this year. The original goal was to collect 106 units of blood and McNary collected 110 units. The blood drive was on October 30 from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm.
The gym was full of nurses and leadership students who were helping out.
“Honestly, I just wanted to help out,” Michelle Gonzalez, a sophomore at McNary said. “I volunteer at church and help to set up clothes for people in need.”
People giving blood filed in and out of the gym room throughout the day. “I’ve always been interested and figured why not give someone an opportunity to give them something they need,” Haley Hughes, a junior at McNary said. “I am apart of the national honors society so we do a lot of community service.”
A lot of the people giving blood were apart of the national honors society and agreed they just wanted to help people in need.
Eryne Ige, a senior at McNary, was very next to give blood and seemed very relax. “I’ve donated blood in the past and it’s been fine. Nothing happens to you and I just like helping out others,” Ige said. Ige also is apart of the national honors society and enjoys doing community service to help others.
McNary is hoping that more people will give blood next year and we will continue to be a helping school that gives back to our community.
