AHS Highlights

On December 18, 2015 the Alternative High School's Community Service and Awareness class sponsored a very successful American Red Cross Blood Drive. There were 54 donors who came to donate, and 20 of those donors were FIRST time donors! In fact, donors had to be turned away due to lack of supplies. Each donation of blood can help save up to three lives. A total of 40 productive units was collected, and that is enough blood to help 120 hospital patients' lives.

The Community Service and Awareness course is a new elective offered this year to sophomores, juniors, and seniors at the Alternative High School. It is designed to increase the students' involvement in community affairs and the awareness of community service opportunities and public issues. It gives students an opportunity to reflect on their service- related experiences. They decided to sponsor the blood drive to show support for an 8 year old Burlington County resident, who suffers from childhood cancer. The students were responsible for securing the date, time, and location. They also helped to recruit donors and publicized the drive. The class also learned about blood, the eligibility requirements to give blood, and the donation process.

Donating blood is a simple thing to do, but it can make a BIG difference in the lives of others.
