On January 29, Heritage Hall’s Upper School Kindness Club partnered with the Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) to host its second blood drive of the school year.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the OBI is in great need of donations. According to Kindness Club President Campbell Leiterman '22, 39 Chargers donated during last week’s event. Of those, Leiterman said 26 were full blood donations and six were double red blood cell donations. In total, approximately 200 recipients benefited.
Founded this year, the Kindness Club seeks to spread positivity across campus and in the greater community. “Our primary goals this year were to establish and grow the club and to facilitate projects that better our community,” Leiterman said.
Club treasurer Jessica Leite '22 noted, “Events like the blood drive are a great way for the Kindness Club to give back and to make a positive impact on those undergoing difficult circumstances. We look forward to future opportunities to lend a helping hand and spread kindness to others.”
