Donors had to wear masks and appointments were scheduled in a way to prevent problems with social distancing. The three-member Red Cross team did an amazing job getting all donors safely through the process.    The day was a huge success. Every spot was filled and all donors who came were able to give. 18 pints were collected which was 5 over the goal for the day.    The KAYS have collected a total of 43 pints of blood throughout the year. This qualified a KAY member to receive a scholarship from the Red Cross. This $250 scholarship was given to the KAY president, Jaden Boden, who helped schedule the drives throughout the year.    Thanks again to everyone who helped with the drives the KAYS sponsored throughout the school year. It takes both students and community members to make them successful! Together, we saved many lives!
