Blood Drive Frenzy

This past Friday, DECA held a blood drive in the gymnasium. Students over the age of 17 were given the opportunity to donate blood. The blood donated is used by Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center for blood transfusions and other medical procedures. Every one pint of blood can save up to three lives.
