The Christ the King Community recently hosted its Semi-Annual Blood Drive in conjunction with the New York Blood Center at Christ the King High School.
Eligible students took time from their schedules to give the gift of life by donating their blood, as the New York Blood Center is always in need of blood. More than 85 pints of blood were donated. That means up to 255 lives were saved by the CK Blood Drive.
“We at Christ the King High School are proud of the students that came out to donate blood,” said Principal Peter Mannarino. “Christ the King has always tried to instill a strong sense of moral values and civic mindedness in our students and we are pleased that they are setting an example for others.”
