Dullea lends a hand

It’s the time of year for the blood drive again

This is the second blood drive Marion has hosted this year

, where students are preparing either to donate, or volunteer their time to help. Among these volunteers is Haley Dullea, junior.

This is the second year that Dullea has volunteered, but she has never donated, having sports everytime on the day that she could. All though she doesn’t physically draw blood, she still helps out a lot. “I help by reminding people of their donation times, and I also help people check in sometimes.” Dullea commented. The donation time is the time slot that a student picked when they signed up, and students need to check in when they arrive to donate.

Not everyone is picked to volunteer their help during the blood drive. “Usually the volunteers are the people in Win With Wellness, and you have to be chosen to be in that.” Dullea explained. Each time the volunteers help with about 60-70 donors. In order to be a donor, a student must be at least 16, and can’t have any health issues. It’s okay not to know your blood type, as they can find out.

When Dullea was asked what her favorite part of volunteering was, watching people almost pass out came up as a joke, but she decided on something else. “I like seeing all the people who decide to donate, it’s cool.” She said. She is excited to see how many people turn up this year, and is happy to help again.
