The cadets advertised the blood drive and conducted a sign up table before class and during lunch time. The cadets filled all available sign up slots on the blood drive registration sheet. They help with set up and tear down of blood collecting equipment and worked as aids with the American Red Cross staff.

The month of May is a critical time for blood donations, and seeing this need, the Cadets decided to conduct a second blood drive. They already conducted a successful blood drive back in October. The cadets had 45 donors sign up to donate, of which 23 were first time donors! The American Red Cross was pleased with the results!
