Delcastle Spring Blood Drive a Success!

Delcastle Technical High School's Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) chapter and the Blood Bank of Delmarva teamed up to organize a blood drive on Thursday, March 30, in the Delcastle Gymnasium. The event was a huge success, with over 70 units of blood collected from teachers and students.

Blood donations are critical for saving lives, as they can help those who have lost blood due to injury or surgery, or who suffer from medical conditions such as anemia or cancer. One unit of donated blood can save up to three lives, making blood drives like the one held at Delcastle incredibly important.

The Delcastle HOSA chapter is an organization for students who are interested in pursuing careers in healthcare. The chapter provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills and participate in community service projects, like the blood drive. The blood drive not only provided a valuable service to the community but also allowed HOSA students to gain practical experience in organizing and running an event.

The Blood Bank of Delmarva is a non-profit organization that collects and distributes blood and blood products to hospitals in the Delmarva region. They rely on donations from organizations and individuals to maintain a sufficient supply of blood for those in need. By partnering with the Blood Bank of Delmarva, the Delcastle HOSA chapter was able to contribute to this vital mission and help save lives.
