StuCo hosted the Community Blood Drive on Thursday, Oct. 24. Each student who participated donated one pint of blood which saves two lives.

Junior Taylor Felshaw donated one pint of blood for her first time.

“All of my siblings [donated blood] and earlier this week I donated my hair so I decided I might as well donate blood too,” Felshaw said.

Felshaw thought the procedure went better than expected.

“I felt a little bit light-headed, but nothing too bad,” Felshaw said. “I’m glad I did it though because I got to help people who needed it so that made me feel better.”

Junior Tarah Shane had a less pleasant first time experience.

“The pump stopped working and it wouldn’t take my blood,” Shane said. “They had to move the needle around which made me feel overheated and I almost passed out.”

Though Shane endured a painful procedure, she was overall glad she did it.

“The good thing about [donating blood] was that I helped two people,” Shane said. “It was worth it.”
