Recent high school graduate Alexandria Szabo is organizing a local blood drive to help boost the blood supply as well as help her earn a scholarship.
Working with the Puget Sound Blood Center, Szabo is trying to recruit enough donors to make it feasible for the Point to be the site of a mobile blood drive.
“If I can recruit 36 to 40 people who will commit I will earn a $400 scholarship,” she said.
So far she has 15 donors signed up and is hoping to make arrangements to use the fire station for the blood drive, which is being planned for August. “The end of summer is a time when there’s a need for blood,” she said.
