That's why the Porter Ridge High School Interact Club teams up each fall and spring with the Red Cross to hold blood drives at school. “Donating blood is a vital chance to directly save lives. It's such an important part of our hospitals and healthcare systems that we can easily contribute to,” Interact Club Sponsor Becky Craig commented.
