‘It’s a Giving Time’: Blood Drive 2017

The West Bend High Schools Student Council hosted their annual blood drive today in the south gym by partnering with the Blood Center of Wisconsin. Both students and staff turned up to donate, along with some community members as well. This year’s theme was ‘Superheroes.’ Below four of the superheroes explain why they chose to donate.

I donated because I have O blood and I figured it’d be a good idea because everyone gets it. I hate needles, but I still decided to do it. This is the one thing where I’m like, ‘Okay, I’ll do it.’”  
Samantha George, West senior

My anatomy teacher Mr. Clark stressed how important it was to have as many donors as possible. I just wanted to make a difference.”
Carter Mayer, East senior

I donated because it’s for a good cause, and I like to be able to help people. And it’s Christmas time, so it’s a giving time, and this is the best gift I can give to people.
Serenity Krueger, West senior

Because it’s for a good cause, and some people need it more than I do.
Eli Tranel, West junior
