Students are killing two birds with one stone Monday at Lima Senior High School. They are actually helping to collect blood.
The forty-four Patient Care Technology Students are helping with a Red Cross Blood Drive being held at Lima Senior High School. The blood drive is held twice a year, and this is the twenty first year the two have combined their efforts. The Red Cross is hoping to get fifty units of blood at the drive, with one hundred and five students signed up to donate.
The students are getting valuable hands on experience in a medical setting. Many of the Patient Care Technology students are signed up to donate. This is a good thing because Miller says when the students begin donating early they are more likely to continue.
The blood drive lasts until 2:30 Monday afternoon.
