Thursday, January 10, 2012 Columbia Area Career Center's HOSA chapter cosponsored a blood drive with the American Red Cross. Students and staff once again showed their willingness to give to a worthy cause by donating 53 units of blood, exceeding the 40 unit goal. Red Cross officials said that the majority of donors were students. Advisor Monica Duemmel said "for every unit donated, three lives are saved."
HOSA students participated, promoted and recruited students to donate. They themselves donated, worked the
registration table and assisted in the canteen.
