School Club Collaboration Increases Blood Collection

The Millburn (N.J.)-Short Hills Chapter reports that 82 students and seven staff members donated blood at the Red Cross student/faculty/staff drive held at Millburn High School. Of these, 45 were first-time donors. Between the two drives held at the school this year, a total of 180 students had the experience of giving blood and 196 usable units of blood were collected. This was more than 40 percent higher than in any prior year. The credit for this increase in student turn-out goes to the hard-working student committee and faculty advisors who took full responsibility for recruiting donors. The student committee was made up largely of members of the Red Cross Club and Future Physicians and Nurses clubs.
