Lowry’s Blood Drive saves one life at a time

Lowry High School held a blood drive on April 3, 2012. The event lasted for six and a half hours.

“I donated blood because I knew I could save someone’s life. Blood transfusions have kept my grandpa alive for six months, so I guess I can say that he has inspired me to donate my blood,” said Ashley Lombardi. 

It had a great outcome, with many participants from all grades. For some, it was a piece of cake but for others, it was peer torture. They didn’t care though, because on average one pint of blood can save up to three lives. It is a very long process though, you can’t have any tattoos, you have to weigh a certain amount, and be a certain height. Those who did qualify though, are going to save many lives.
