Is it the people that donate? Realizing that you can save a person’s life by doing so? HOSA students at SUN Area Technical Institute ran various successful blood drives throughout the year. HOSA had 26 good donors the first blood drive, 30 at the second, and 33 at the third. The final blood drive of the year produced 21 additional pints for a grand total of 110 pints. SUN Area Technical Institute has earned $2,000 in scholarships for the students by hosting these blood drives through the American Red Cross.
SUN Tech has also received an award for all the past blood drives and volunteering in the community. The District Supervisor for the American Red Cross is Leon Tillman who is able to adjust and accommodate the blood drives to fit the needs of the providers. Leon will be attending our upcoming Awards Ceremony to present the scholarship awards to the recipients.
