By Jaelynn Hill: Thank you to all of the community members who contributed to this year’s FCCLA and FFA Blood Drive. Each year, the FCCLA Chapter sets a goal and this year’s was to collect 40 units. Although the goal was not met, the chapter members are still very proud to have collected a total of 39 units of blood. In addition, every year the annual Blood Drive sets a goal of 155,550 units of blood. The group is very thankful for the community members that came to the high school to donate blood. The blood that was donated stays right here in our community!
