DAHS Blood Drive


Blood drives have been around since the Egyptian times around 2500 BC and was called bloodletting. It was nothing like blood drives today. Bloodletting was very unsanitary and was usually performed by barbers, which is where the red and white strips at barber shops come from. Blood drives are used to help problems with blood loss in matching blood type.

Recently, Lisbon David Anderson High School held a blood drive.  There were 23 students who donated. Senior, Cody Rose participated in the drive. He said that it took about 10 minutes because he knew what he was doing.

Cody stated that the people who took the blood were very kind and lovely people. He said that he believes that they are good people because they provide high school kids an opportunity to help others. Cody said that he would donate again.
