Pottstown High School students and staff showed their commitment to our community last week when they took part in the Miller Keystone Blood Drive. 

Thirty-Five units of blood were collected and will be used by our local hospital. 

Each unit can be used in life saving measures for three people. 

This Thanksgiving 105 people will enjoy a happy holiday because Pottstown School District cares.

In 2014, Carol Graves, Donor Resource Representative of the Miller-Keystone Blood Center, said, “Pottstown High School is consistently one of the strongest participating schools in our donor program." 

"Of all of the schools in the nine county area that we service, Pottstown, in spite of being one of the smallest school enrollments, is second in overall number of units collected. They have played a very important role in helping to save hundreds of lives in the Pottstown area,” she said.
