On February 11th, seven Cariboo Hill students attended a Blood Donation centre to give blood for the first time. Congratulations to Katherine Widmer, Kate Olivares, Emma Miles, Katie Renner, Baneet Parmar, Hargun Singh and Rahid Rahiem for helping save lives.
Mrs. Bernard and Noam also gave blood. While we ate our cookies and drank our juice afterwards, Katie, Kate and I spoke with a lady who had just donated for the 135th time! Big steps to follow.
