Johnston High School hosts annual summer blood drive June 28


Johnston Senior High School is hosting its annual summer blood drive on June 28 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. The blood drive will take place in the school’s cafeteria. Our region is currently in a blood emergency and the Rhode Island Blood Center is in need of people willing to donate.

To put this is perspective: blood is the only thing in a hospital room that can’t be man-made. There are all sorts of machines and gadgets that a hospital can buy, however, blood is something that has to be donated in order for it to make it into the operating room.

Johnston High School has been recognized multiple times by the RIBC for its commitment in bringing in donors and the community is looking to doing it again.
