According to NHS member Cory Tumberg, who coordinated the blood drive as his community project, NHS had a great response with more than 40 students and staff giving blood.

"The majority of our donors were students, so I was pleased to see our students step up and donate," Tumberg, a WDC senior, said.

The American Red Cross team from Alexandria set up their mobile site in the choir room at WDC Elementary, taking donations from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The WDC NHS is made up of juniors and seniors. Rachel Bounds serves as advisor.
