St. Edmund hosted its annual Fall blood drive on Nov. 22, which was coordinated by Kathy DeMello, RN, the school’s nurse.
Students, alumni, faculty and staff rolled up their sleeves and gave, gave and gave some more. By the end of the day over 127 units of the red stuff was collected, which will be used to save 381 lives.
“I am so proud of our current students and of those who returned to the school to donate,” said Nurse DeMello. She added, “These young men and women who are willing help others are the true heroes.”
