NRHS students generous with blood

Two blood drives sponsored by the New Richmond High School National Honor Society resulted in a total of 109 units of blood for the Hoxworth Blood Center involving a total of 137 volunteers.

Juniors Megan Wollum and Levi Simpson were among 69 volunteers who donated a total of 57 units of blood to the Moxworth Blood Center during the NRHS spring blood drive.

"Our spring blood drive resulted in 69 people volunteering to donate blood and Hoxworth collecting 57 units," said New Richmond High School National Honor Society adviser Nicole Parker. "The NHS has scheduled the next blood drive for November 7, 2013."

Last fall's NHS blood drive resulted in 52 units being collected from 68 volunteers.
