The Blood Drive was a Success!
The Grade 3 Blood Drive yesterday was a huge success! Overall, we collected 39 units of blood for the San Diego Blood Bank on behalf of Gillispie School, and 25 people donated for the very first time at our drive! Participants were members from the Gillispie community and our local neighborhood.
According to the blood bank, the amount collected is way above average for a mobile drive! Moreover, this collection will save the lives of 117 people in just one day. We are so proud!
We’d like to thank everyone who donated blood and helped make this event possible. A special thank you to the Grade 3 classes and Ms. Hurley for helping organize another successful event at a time when blood donations are so needed.
See you next year!
