News from Somers’ John F. Kennedy High School on a blood drive organized by student who needed multiple transfusions last year from a car accident;

John F. Kennedy Catholic High School, in conjunction with New York Blood Center (NYBC), will sponsor a blood drive titled ‘Pay it Forward’ in support of high school senior Anthony Torchia on December 20, 2012, from 2:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Kennedy High School, 54 Route 138, Somers, New York.

 

Last summer, Anthony was seriously injured in a car accident and received multiple transfusions of blood. He spent three weeks in the hospital and credits volunteer blood donors with helping save his life. Remembering those who contributed to his recovery, Anthony is asking the community to help him ‘pay it forward’ and donate blood at his high school blood drive.
