Pascagoula High School Blood Drive

Students at Pascagoula High School teamed up with the Blood Center for a blood drive on campus today. Students also lined up to give blood to support and help a fellow classmate who is battling leukemia.

This is the second blood drive the students held this school year and the Blood Center brought in multiple bloodmobiles to help out.

Student Council President Sydney Triplett says the drive also helps Pascagoula High students earn scholarships while also saving lives. “I mean, you never know who is in need. This blood can save, one pint can save up to three lives. It’s so important that we’re reaching out and we’re giving back to the community.”

The goal for the day was to collect around 250 to 260 pints of blood to benefit over 700 people in need in the area.
