Over 60 students give blood at QHS blood drive

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Over 60 local teenagers took some time out of their day to donate blood at Quincy High School on Monday.

The American Red Cross held a blood drive at Quincy High School to give students and teachers a chance to help save lives.

The Red Cross says it is running desperately low on supplies after Hurricane Sandy. One QHS student says giving blood is an easy way to do something for others.

"Because I like to help people. And I figured if I ever needed blood I would like someone to help me out," QHS student Abby Hibbert said.

The Red Cross usually holds blood drives at QHS three times a year. Organizers say the turn out is always excellent.
