HOSA Chapter co-hosts Blood Drive with American Red Cross
The Columbia HOSA Chapter along with the American Red Cross co-sponsored a blood drive at Columbia Area Career Center. 51 donors participated in this life saving event, with 27 being first time donors helping to reach the drive goal of 48 units. . This drive came at an opportune time as the severe winter weather cancelled several scheduled events creating a blood shortfall. One pint of blood can save up to 3 lives, and every donation is very much appreciated.
HOSA students promoted the event as well as worked several stations including the registration desk and canteen. HOSA sponsors are Monica Duemmel, Deb Canine, Bobby Horn and Christine Roberson.
