On Tuesday, October 3, Carondelet students, teachers, administrators, and parents donated blood in one of the first blood drives on Carondelet's campus in years. The donations could help as many as 105 patients in need.
In total, 35 donors gave 35 units of blood. When whole blood is broken down into its components, it has the potential to positively affect three patients' lives. This means that Carondelet contributed to saving as many as 105 lives with Tuesday's drive.
The drive was organized by the Sophomore Class Council and coordinated with Blood Centers of the Pacific. This was the first on-campus blood drive in a few years. The class council hopes to host another drive in the future.
