The blood drive held March 11 drew 30 pints of blood that were donated to the Red Cross, according to Jamie Glinz, co-adviser to the Southfield Student Congress, which organized the drive.
Sixty students attempted to donate but only 30 were successful, partly because the Red Cross was not available for donations during part of first hour and nurses had to leave before all donors could give.
“Student Congress is always happy to run a blood drive because we are always happy to save lives,” Glinz said.
“I didn’t want to donate at first,” said senior Tremaine Cole, “but I’m glad I did; I saved about three lives.”
Another donor, junior Dawon Fergerson, said, I felt like I did a good deed, and I will donate again next round.”
