Mount Mercy Academy Sponsors Blood Donation

                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.”

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
