FCCLA Sponsors Blood Drive

“We’re a student lead national organization that focuses on the family,” said Kimberlea Embry, sponsor of the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) at the high school. The drive, which supported the American Red Cross, was held Tuesday in the BCHS gym. (pictured above Chelsea Deel (right) with Marsha Swopes

“It’s one of our community service projects. Hopefully, it will save someone’s life,” Embry added. By 10 A.M. students reported they had commitments from 65 students, faculty and staff.

Donors could choose either regular donations or the red cell machine. Age restrictions applied.

That's me! I was kind of scared at first, but I'm really glad I donated!
Thank you all for donating blood to the American Red Cross. Kimberlea Embry and F.C.C.L.A. do many things to help our community and today they gave "the gift of life". Thank you !!!
Thanks to the students, faculty and staff for making our blood drive successful. We gave 58 pints of blood. Great job BCHS!
So proud of my Chelsea! Also for the rest that took the time to donate. Way to support the ones in need!
