Blood drives are a very important way to give back to the community. Blood drives help so many people around the world and can actually save lives. By giving a single donation of blood one can save up to three lives. It is an incredible way to contribute and help people in need.

Pikesville is hosting a blood drive on December 19 and many people have already signed up to participate in the blood drive. Some have participated in several blood drives while others have never before. By having it at Pikesville students are able to have an opportunity to help people and to the community.

Navah Mowery (’16)  says that “ I really likes to give back to possibly save someone’s life. The feeling it leaves you with is like you’ve done something great.”

Jordan Plotkin has helped organize the blood drive the past two years. The first blood drive she organized was successful and she hopes to make this better than her previous blood drive. Plotkin has been involved in volunteering and likes getting others involved as well. According to Plotkin, she organized the blood drive because she knew that Pikesville previously hosted them and then they stopped organizing them

“I’m trying to get underclassman involved in volunteering this year so hopefully they will carry it on in the future,” says Plotkin. She wants people to be involved and make an impact. By getting involved and by helping others get involved, it creates a domino effect. She hopes in the future that people will continue organizing blood drives and helping others.

“I grew up with my dad donating every chance he got and I wanted to give students the opportunity of starting that at a young age. It’s such a great thing someone can do to save up to three lives. Because you never know if you’ll ever need it one day, says Plotkin.

By introducing these types of volunteering opportunities into the community within the school, it allows students to learn how to participate in the act of helping others lets them see the value of these opportunities.
