On October 1, the National Honor Society and the American Red Cross held a Blood Drive at Keenan. The Blood Drive was held for faculty, staff and students who would be willing to donate blood.

“I wanted to help out in any way I can,” Senior Cora Webb said.

Webb was willing to give blood to anyone who needs it more. She also said giving blood was the greatest thing ever.

“We had over 61 donors, mostly students,” Ms. Mary Haile, National Honor Society Sponsor, said.

Nearly 28 pints of blood were given to the American Red Cross. The blood will be given to those who need it most.

“The blood drive was a huge success,” Haile said.

Also, there was a completion between Eau Claire High School and Keenan to see who could donate the most blood. Eau Claire donated 20 pints of blood.

“It was the perfect opportunity to help out the needy and also have fun doing it,” Senior Reshawn Robinson said. “Giving blood to the less fortunate was indeed great.”

Students not only had fun at the Blood Drive, but they learned diving is better than receiving, and Keenan gave blood to those in need.
