Hillcrest President Gerard Burke said, "We are pleased to have helped the lives of more than 2,100 people by collecting over 700 units of blood over the years. I am proud of the Hillcrest staff for taking on the challenge of organizing the blood drive. This is a prime example of how the staff likes to have fun while giving back to our community."
The blood drive is organized by the Hillcrest staff. Both the staff and Hillcrest students volunteer throughout the day. All presenting donors receive a $10.00 gift card to Eastern Mountain Sports, an ice cream sandwich and a chance to win great raffle prizes.
