Monday, March 26, the Sorento Fourth Grade class sponsored its 13th annual American Red Cross blood drive.
Teacher Christina Pashia initiated the classroom project shortly after a natural disaster when there was a demand for blood. Students learn about the blood donating process and the importance of donating. They work together, assist donors, and learn of the need to be a volunteer.
Fifteen people registered with fifteen units of whole blood collected.
Corrine Varner and her son Tom Varner each got a 5-gallon pin.
