HOSA Blood Drive and Yeti Fundraiser

One of the easiest ways to do charity for your fellow man is donating blood for those who need it. Here at MCHS, HOSA partnered with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive in the MC4. HOSA also held a fundraiser to help raise money for the club.

Blood drives all across the world help save millions of lives each year and here at MCHS we had 400 people donate 1 pint of blood each. That is 6,400 oz of blood. HOSA hosts this blood each year and donating is free; all you have to do is fill out a permission slip (have your parents sign), fill out a short survey, and pass a few, small, exams. Donating is easy and fairly painless, so why not take a few moments out of your day and donate blood to a great cause and help those in need?

Another great thing HOSA has recently done is sell YETI cups for a fundraiser they hosted. Alexis Walton told me that she alone sorted 1,000 cups in one day. The money that HOSA has raised will now go towards student activities and keeping the club up and running. The YETI fundraiser will help keep the Meade County HOSA chapter open and that will give HOSA members more opportunities to advance their medical skills and knowledge.

HOSA has done great things for MCHS and has given students in the medical pathways amazing opportunities to grow. I’d like the thank HOSA on behalf of the entire school for everything they do for our students, our community, and our world.
