WTSS staff donate the "Gift of Life"

Twenty-one West Texas State School staff members recently donated the "Gift of Life" in a blood drive sponsored by the WTSS Clinic and United Blood Services.

Sabra Hill, Director of Nurses at WTSS, spearheaded the drive held on Oct. 26, which is the most recent in a long history of participation by West Texas State School staff. The first WTSS blood drive was held in 1989, and the response from those who overcame their fear of needles was noteworthy. Fifty-one units of blood were collected in that first drive, which is still the record.

In 1992 the state school doubled its efforts by beginning semi-annual drives. Texas Tech University nursing staff began coordinating the activity in 1997 and provided further incentives to donate by supplying homemade cookies and other treats to those who made blood donations.

Plans are already underway for another blood drive in the spring.
