Today, the student senate at Rock Island High School is sponsoring the first blood drive of the year from 8 a.m.-12 noon.
The goal is to have 200 student donations.
Approaching the holiday season, there’s a great need for donated blood.
On Friday, Bettendorf High School’s student council will be holding a silent auction at the the final home game against Burlington.
There will be baskets containing donations from local businesses available for bidding.
It’ll be held during the sophomore and varsity football games.
Also, a donation of five canned goods will be good half-price admission to the game, in an effort to “Pack the Bus”
