CALEDONIA, Minnesota (WXOW) - More than 70 Caledonia High School students may have been light headed Wednesday, after donating a pint of blood to the Red Cross in the first blood drive held at the school.
The idea started with a group of the school's National Honor Society students who wanted to do something to help others. They gave a presentation to the school including friends and family telling stories of how they benefited from blood donation.
In just one lunch hour the students had filled all of the donation spots, as well as a list of back-ups.
Caledonia High School Senior and coordinator of the drive, Emma Lang said, "You never know who it can be helping. Some day it could be the person sitting next to you and some day it could be you."
Emma added that she hopes next year's senior class will keep the tradition going and pass the torch for years to come.
