The 2016 Portsmouth West Beta Club blood drive was a success by passing the expected 31 liters of blood and receiving 35 liters donated by 41 students on Oct. 17 which is 113% above the original goal. The blood drive was held in the gym to collect donated blood to give blood to people who need it and save lives. With the 35 liters of productive units, 27 whole blood and 8 double red units, the Red Cross is hoping to save 105 lives with the donated units. This blood drive is one of the primary service projects of the Portsmouth West Beta club. The next blood drive will be in Feb. 9 2017. Makayla Cooper says one of the reasons she donated was because "I like helping others and I heard about the blood drive and thought it would be great to donate my blood to help save someones life."
