October 23, 2018 marked Paint Branch High School’s 25th blood drive. On this day, the drive ran from first period through fifth period and saw both students and staff donate.

Of course, for those who donated, the customary snack table was a pleasant stop after giving a little of yourself. Whether it was a quick drink or a sugary snack, donors enjoyed having a chance to refresh before heading back to class.

According to the group running the drive, since 2003, Paint Branch has helped accumulate 2,656 donor blood packages that has helped close to 8,000 patients. The patient needs for the blood ranges from emergency blood loss patients to cancer and burn victims.
