Albany- The students in the health occupations class at Monroe High School sponsored a school-wide blood drive Friday.
The juniors and seniors were successful in getting nearly 140 of their peers to roll up their sleeves and donate blood.
"We told them that they would help save lives when people need blood, and their mother or someone in their family may need blood one day and it would be good for them to give blood. It would save a lot of lives if they would give blood," says Chiquita Chaney.
This is the second blood drive the students sponsored this year. They're planning a third this summer.
