NHS Runs Successful Blood Drive

The blood drive hosted by the R-PHS National Honor Society was a big success.  Their goal, set by the Red Cross, was to collect 71 units of blood and the Rockets surpassed that goal by collecting 83 units!  There were so many students willing to donate blood that, unfortunately, couldn’t be accommodated during the school day.  The NHS students are already planning their drive next year to start earlier so to accommodate as many students as possible.

Every year the Red Cross staff comment on how well our drive is organized and how wonderful our students are.  This year, again, they commented on the great behavior and attitude of the student donors and the hard work put forth by the NHS student volunteers.

Just another example of how important Reeths-Puffer is to our community, Rocket City!
