Hornsby Elementary hosts blood drive to fight community shortage
HARDEMAN COUNTY, Tenn. — Hornsby Elementary School made it their mission to help the community’s blood shortage.
Tuesday afternoon, the elementary school hosted Lifeline Blood Services for a blood drive. To get more people to participate they created incentives.
Each class competed to bring in as many participants as they could, and the winning class will receive a party.
All teachers that give blood will be registered for a gift card and each person who registers to give blood will have their name put in a drawing for a four night stay in the Smoky Mountains.
“I hope that we have great participation. I know there’s always a blood shortage, and so I hope that Hornsby Elementary can show up and show out and our parents and our community and our teachers step up and donate so we wont have a blood shortage,” said Julie Walton, Assistant Principal at Hornsby Elementary.
