These Kenedy High School students helped save lives by giving blood during a recent blood drive held at their school.
Kenedy High School had a successful blood drive on April 16. The projected goal was 20 units. A total of 27 units was collected. KHS also had eight students who tried but were unable to donate. Each KHS student who donates a total of six times during their high school years will receive a red cord to wear at graduation.
Each unit donated saves 3 adults or 6 babies. The students who donated helped save 81 adults or 162 babies. The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center depends on school blood drives for donations because 30% of their supply comes from schools. The schools are truly missed during the summer months. KHS thanks all who made this blood drive a success and for saving lives.
