On September 21, Peoria Accelerated High School welcomed the United Blood Services to hold the 1 of 4 blood drives for the 2016-17 school year. It was a packed day with over 50 students signed up and ready to donate. With a blood shortage in Arizona, PA students delivered. A team of Key Club members and two additional volunteers worked efficiently to get students signed up, registered, and donating. There were no incidents as everyone was properly hydrated and well fed. Thank you to everyone who donated their blood and/or time. High school students make up the largest population of donors in the state. Keep it up; you're truly changing lives!
Save the date! The next PAHS Blood Drive will be Tuesday, December 6, 2016.
