|Give thanks by giving blood|
This November, the American Red Cross and Wallace High School (WHS) are encouraging all eligible donors to give blood.
On Nov. 27, the WHS Student Council will host the Wallace High School Gives Thanks Blood Drive to honor current and former WHS students who have battled cancer and received blood products during treatment.
Among those being recognized is WHS graduate Jessica (Smith) Vapenik. Vapenik was diagnosed with lymphoma earlier this year and is currently undergoing treatment.
The blood drive also honors Blake Pelster, the son of Matt and Kassie Pelster, who attends Wallace Junior High.
Wallace High School Gives Thanks Blood Drive will be held Nov. 27 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. CT at Wallace High School, 151 N. Wallace Rd.
To make an appointment, call Wallace High School at 308-387-4323 or visit redcrossblood.org.
