On April 23rd the Red Cross Club hosted a blood drive. The blood drive was held in the auxilary gym, a location club sponsor Jenna Lombardo said was secured with help from Activities Coordinator Jake Johnson, and the athletic department.

Twenty-two staff members participated, but only ten students gave blood. Lombardo said that they will use the “student participation as feedback,” while planning future blood drives.

In January the Red Cross reported that the number of people donating blood has dropped nationwide, resulting in an emergency blood shortage. Blood is crucial for performing surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illness, and traumatic injuries. The goal of the Lightridge blood drive was to get as many units of blood as possible to the Red Cross.
