Student Council Hosts Fall Blood Drive

Briley Rhodes, Co-Editor-in-Chief

Next week, the student council is hosting its biannual blood drive. The Okawville Student Council partners with the Red Cross to bring this to our community. The one this year will take place Tuesday, September 20th from 10-3 pm in Luechtefeld Gymnasium. If you would like to give blood, it is recommended to eat a protein-rich meal the night before, drink lots of water, be well rested, and wear a shirt with sleeves that easily roll up. Giving blood results in many benefits for others including helping people who are injured in accidents, those undergoing cancer treatments, and people battling blood diseases. Those wanting to give blood can schedule an appointment on the Red Cross website or walk-ins are welcome. Please consider coming out and making a difference!
