SCOTCH PLAINS – Union Catholic High School’s SMAC (Student Movement Against Cancer), along with faculty moderator Edward Thornton and the New Jersey Blood Services, hosted a blood drive on Dec. 13. Union Catholic had 37 whole blood donors, including alumni, faculty, parents, and community members. Over 100 lives can potentially be helped by this level of service.
Statistically, one out of every three people will need blood at some point in their lives; which is why Union Catholic is strongly dedicated to increasing awareness for this cause. A second blood drive will be hosted on March 15, 2012. All eligible candidates are strongly encouraged to participate.
