Putnam Valley Sixth Graders Organize The Largest Blood Drive In Dutchess And Putnam Counties
Did you know that only 2% of the population donates blood, and the percentage of the population in need far exceeds the supply? Putnam Valley sixth graders are quite versed in these facts and set about doing something about it by hosting the largest blood drive in Putnam and Dutchess counties on March 14. This is the sixth year Putnam Valley Middle School has organized this event, which has also become among the top ten blood drives in the Hudson Valley.
