The Liberty Middle School PTA hosted a blood drive Thursday, March 29 that brought dozens of people to the school for a good deed.
According to chairperson and Liberty teacher Lori Graham, a total of 37 donations were collected during the five-hour event, which was the first of its kind at Liberty.
"Blood cannot be manufactured so it can only come as a gift from people," said Liberty Principal Robert Klemt, who was one of the donors at the event. "This is a way to give back to the community and help save lives."
The drive doubled as a fundraiser for the PTA, which raised $300 that will go towards school-based programs.
