Rock and roll for a good cause
Coeur d’Alene High School’s DECA chapter is reaching out to classmates and the community and making donating blood cool.
The Blood Drive 2009 – Rock Out Your Veins began Thursday and continues through today, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Rock ’n’ Roll themed goal was to make the drive exciting and appealing to donors, breaking last year’s numbers from 365 to the 500 mark for 2009.
