The annual Saint Patrick Fall blood drive was held Tuesday, Nov. 14.

This year’s goal was 110 pints of blood, and over 115 pints of blood were given by students and faculty. Each pint of blood saves 3 lives, meaning the drive saved 345 lives.

This blood was already promised to these hospitals, so by exceeding our goal, the team did not let these hospitals down. This blood goes to hospitals for things like surgeries and blood transfusions.

With these numbers, Ms. McMahon considered it anoher successful blood drive.
