Recently, Half Hollow Hills High School East held its annual blood drive, sponsored by the SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) organization. One student remarked, “It’s important to give back to the community.”
Hundreds of students volunteered for the Long Island area of the New York Blood Center.
The New York Blood Center website states, “Donating blood is literally giving the gift of life. Each day, patients in our regions need close to 2,000 people a day to roll up their sleeves to give the gift of life.”
