Saint Edmund Preparatory High School is a winner in the 2007-2008 New York Yankees High School Blood Donor Championship. Members of the student body and school nurse Kathy DeMello, RN were honored at a New York Yankees game for their tremendous contribution and for making a difference in the lives of so many.

Demello coordinated two blood drives, held in the school gymnasium, 2474 Ocean Avenue, and collected 174 pints of blood. Both events were in conjunction with the New York City Blood Center.

Students received free tickets to attend a Yankees game, during which times the students and Nurse DeMello were presented with a championship banner during an on-field presentation.

Nurse DeMello stated that she is “very proud of the students who not only gave blood but all those who volunteered to help make the drives so successful. The students truly understand the importance of giving blood and are committed to saving lives.”
