Riverbank High School participated in another Delta Blood Bank blood drive on Friday, Nov. 6. Students stepped into the Bruin gym between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., taking time out of their school day to help save lives. There were 67 donors registered with 11 deferred, which allowed Delta to collect 56 units, exceeding the school goal of 42 for the drive. One unit of blood can help save three lives. According to Kerry Morris, Blood Drive Coordinator, the school has not done this many units since 2008. “For the size of Riverbank High School the participation was huge,” said Morris. “They did an amazing job, lots of lives saved.”
