Elmont Memorial High School Key Club Hosts End of Year Blood Drive
Elmont Memorial High School students gave a vital piece of themselves back to the community on Thursday, May 31st, with their annual blood drive. The end of a successful school year, and of her high school career, for 12th grader and Key Club member Carol-Ann Molaire meant one thing: time to donate blood. For the past several years, the Elmont Memorial High School Key Club has organized a blood drive that gives students and staff the opportunity to donate blood. It is the Key Club’s third blood drive of the school year.
Key Club members, Christina Ashby, Raven Brown and Rebecca Fortune, along with their advisor Mr. Brian Suckle, greeted students and staff at the doors to the gym and assisted them in filling out their medical forms and calming any last minute nervousness. “It feels awesome to donate,” says 11th grader Nashana Yates, “We want to give the gift of life to those who need it!” Over 100 staff and students participated in collecting 71 pints of blood to donate to the New York Blood Center. Elmont Memorial High School celebrates their successful blood drive and looks forward to the school year to come to collect even more donations.
