The American Red Cross accepted blood donations Thursday at Kyrock Elementary. This is an annual event hosted by the fourth grade, and Kyrock's goal was 32 units of blood.
As always, Kyrock friends, family, and staff showed their support for the annual blood drive. The event exceeded expectations with 43 units of blood being donated.
"Thanks to everyone who donated and helped Kyrock exceed their goal," said fourth grade teacher Tammy Poteet. "Only thoughtful people like yourselves can give the gift of life. A special thank you to Marilyn Hopkins and Susie Vincent for volunteering their time today to make this a successful event."
