Dixon Elementary School has provided to blood to help save 150 lives during its blood drives the past few years, according to third grade teacher Michael Fox.

Jennifer Wilkinson, a Dixon parent and a nurse at St. Luke’s Hospital, was donating blood Thursday afternoon. Wilkinson’s donated a variety of ways – including direct donation for her mother – and she finds it convenient to donate at Dixon after school.

“They are always in need of blood for transfusing patients,” Wilkinson said. “It just gives you a good feeling to give something that is easy to give.”
