Decatur Community High School hosted its 13th annual blood drive on Wednesday, Nov. 7. The goal was 60 pints, but the drive fell short with only 51 pints collected.

 

Over half of the donors were high school students. Kensey Garrett, a first time donor, said she became a little light headed after donating, but she plans to give again.  “The people from the Red Cross were very nice,” said Kensey.
