Catholic school in Wakefield holds community blood drive
? St. Anthony Catholic School in Wakefield gave back to the community by holding a blood drive after it came close to permanently closing its doors.
Parents, teachers and students rallied to save the school and urged the archdiocese to keep it open. The argument worked, now St. Anthony is making good on its promise to get more involved in the community.
The New York Blood Center says events like the drive are important because few Bronx residents donate. However, the center says one out of three residents will need blood in their lifetime.
