The 7th grade science classes held their annual HMS blood drive on Thursday, March 12th. The students collected 80 usable pints of blood. Each pint of blood can help three people, enabling our students to impact 240 lives given their work at this community event. The students also managed to bring in 30 new donors!
In addition to running the drive the students created amazing visuals, which demonstrated their knowledge about blood, blood typing and the genetics of blood. The American Red Cross asked us to bring these visuals to their Portland headquarters so they can display them for the public.
