Carbondale Area Jr./Sr. High School hosted its annual blood drive sponsored by the American Red Cross on Friday, Feb. 7.
Marijo Naniewicz, physical education teacher at Carbondale Area led the blood drive, scheduling all appointments. Naniewicz was assisted by senior students Cora Heenan, Izzy Tierney, Hailey Norton and Madison Mushensky.
Tierney said she was happy to help.
"I've always been the kind of person who tries to make a positive difference in our world, so this seemed like a very good place to start," she said. "Since I am not physically able to give blood, I felt like at least, I could help those who can. My family believes strongly that it's our responsibility to help others whenever we can."
