Representatives from the New York Blood Center were special guests on campus during Knox’s annual blood drive. Coordinated by Athletic Director Walter Townes, the blood drive was a success. By the end of the day, Knox donated 27 pints of blood, which translates to 135 lives saved.
Knox students, faculty and staff came out in full force to give of themselves to save the lives of others. “There is a limited amount of blood supply on Long Island, and many people have been going through very difficult times and need blood to survive,” said Coach Townes.
The blood drive took place in the gymnasium lounge, which is the hub of Knox life. Both the students and the staff had an amazing and fulfilling experience. The blood drive has become an event to remember for each and every person in the Knox family.
