On Wednesday, Nov. 6, South’s National Honor Society (NHS) is hosting their annual blood drive. 

Each year, the goal is to donate 50 pints of blood to the American Red Cross, according to NHS advisor Elizabeth Naporano. People who decide to donate can donate from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the girls gym. 

“One person donates one pint, that’s the goal,” Naporano said.

NHS volunteers will help keep the blood drive going and attempt to achieve their 50 pint goal.

“I think last year was fairly successful, but I don’t think we met our goal,” Naporano said. 

The blood drive needs donors of all different blood types in order to assist the American Red Cross.

“I just hope those people sign up to donate,” Naporano said. “There are ten flyers around the school where people can scan the QR code and it takes you right to where you can donate so it’s super easy.”
