Mon, Nov 19th 2018 08:00 am

                Last Thursday Mount Mercy Academy held its annual blood drive. The drive, sponsored by UNYTS, was coordinated by Catherine Luhr, Mount Mercy’s Assistant Principal and the Donate Life Club.  Mount Mercy had twenty-seven donators, collecting 20 pints of blood.  These 3-20 pints have the capability of saving up to 60 lives.

                The students were proud to do their part to help out the Western New York community. Senior Kaitlyn Morris of Orchard Park commented, “Donating blood whenever UNYTS comes to Mount Mercy is really important to me because I know that I am making an impact in someone’s life, whether it’s for a simple procedure or a life or death situation, it is a way for me to directly help someone who needs it.”
