  • At the February monthly meeting of the Leavenworth Lucky Clovers 4-H Club, members learned what a blood drive is and why donating blood is important.
     
    Sleepy Eye High School blood drive coordinator, Deb Reinarts, and Student Council member Josie Schieffert, came to share what a blood drive is and why young people should consider getting involved.
     
    The club members discussed the health project in 4-H and what avenues they could choose to explore under the project topic of blood drives.
     
    Reinarts and Schieffert explained that only two percent of the population is eligible to give blood and daily there is a vast need for donated blood for many reasons. Several club members have participated in donating blood and shared their thoughts with younger members.
     
    As a thank you to the guest speakers, the club gave a donation to the Sleepy Eye High School Student Council to be used for their next blood drive.
     
    The Leavenworth Lucky Clovers meet monthly on the first Sunday of each month.
