Cooper Students, Staff Donate Blood
Blood drives happen so often you almost don’t notice them. But the Red Cross says the need for blood is critical at the moment. That’s why they’re grateful that Cooper High School held a blood drive Tuesday.
A teacher organized it, and she says it’s personal. When her mom was diagnosed with cancer, donated blood helped keep her alive through surgery. That inspired then-Cooper High student Amanda Lieser to donate blood for the first time. Now, years later, she’s a teacher at Cooper and she’s helping other kids make the same decision.
“So many people are gonna be affected by the donations that happen today,” she said. “It’s so exciting.” Lieser told CCX that most of the students boarding the blood drive bus Tuesday were donating blood for the first-time.
