PCHS student coordinates blood drive

PCHS student coordinates blood drive Pickett County High School Senior Samantha Harden wanted to help make a difference and coordinated a blood drive.
The blood drive was held Tuesday, July 24th at the PCHS Agricultural Building, and if Harden reaches her goal donors, she qualifies for a chance at a scholarship given by the American Red Cross. Currently, the American Red Cross is appealing for blood donation due to the low supply.
Each pint of blood can help save more than one life.
Pictured above with Samantha is her mother Sharon Harden, who has been donating blood since she was 18 years old.
