I am working with the Senior Class at Northridge High School in organizing a Blood Drive. It is not part of my job, but I love to volunteer with the students at our school, as well as working with them. It is going very well and we have already reached our goal, but are still taking volunteers. Hopefully, none of us will ever need blood, but I can guarantee someone in our families will. It may be you, or your child, or parent, so give whenever and if you can. Not only will the students benefit from organizing this event, the feeling of "doing good" but it will also make those students eligible for applying for the SOS (Save our Supply) scholarship. They will also gain recognition for their accomplishments. It's a "GOOD THING" for which to gain attention. Just last night was our Homecoming and I was so proud when the homecoming attendants on the "committee" listed it as one of their involvements. They are proud of being involved in this effort.
