Calvary Students Donate 23 Units of Blood

Calvary students once again give back to the community by supporting Florida Blood Services and donating 23 units of blood. The Blood Drive was held on Wednesday, November 6th. Florida Blood Services set a goal for CCHS to donate 20 units. Thanks for the outstanding participation of students and staff, Calvary was able to donate 23 units of blood.  There were 14 first-time donors last week, and with 23 units, 69 lives will be sustained because of the Calvary family. The school will sponsor another Blood Drive in the spring. We hope parents will plan to give at the next Drive.
