Valdosta -- South Georgia high school students give back to the community by donating blood.

Friday, Lowndes High School hosted its Spring blood drive. The student body is looking to best last year's total of 397 units, which made it the largest high school drive blood drive in the Southeastern United States.

"Lowndes High School students are driven to help with their community. They know they could save up to three lives by giving one unit of blood today. So they are all encouraged by that," said Organizer Amy Carter.

Lowndes High School and the American Red Cross hope to surpass 400 units of blood today.
