— One hundred and eight donors contributed 93 pints at Delaware Valley High School's 45th Biannual Blood Drive on Jan. 25.

Donations will held the Red Cross to help alleviate a critical shortage.

It takes many hands and voices to make a blood drive a success. Mrs. Barbara Coyle’s HOSA-Future Health Professionals students worked in shifts at the registration table and acted as escorts and canteen hosts. They formed a Leadership Team to recruit their fellow classmates during lunches and throughout the school, answering questions and encouraging first-time donors. They even went the extra mile by helping students to create online profiles that they could use to earn red cords for graduation as well as scholarships.

Some of these students attended the annual Red Cross High School kick off workshop in October at the Pike County Training Center to prepare for an active role in this event.

Other essential helpers:

The Building Trades students and their teacher Mr. Eric Thiele made the blood drop sign.

The Warrior Café students and teachers supplied coffee, tea, and muffins.

The caféteria staff made “grab and go” lunches for the Red Cross staff that enabled them to work throughout the day to accommodate everyone’s schedule.

"The event was a success because of the many people who are committed to serving the community and meeting this great need," said teacher Leslie Lordi. "We look forward to exceeding our next goal at the upcoming spring drive on April 25."
