Alec Miller plans blood drive as senior project

LOCK HAVEN — Alec Miller, a senior at Central Mountain High School, will be hosting a blood drive for the American Red Cross as his senior project.

The event will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 9, at the Red Eye Center in Flemington.

Anyone who would like to donate at this blood drive any go onto the Red Cross website and look up the blood drive by date and sign up that way.

Miller needs a minimum of 25 units collected in order for his senior project to be considered a successful project.

Avery Dennison started hosting blood drives for the Red Cross a few years ago, and Alec would always ask his mother, who works there, how many units Avery collected and do the math to see how many people that could potentially help.

So, when considering what senior project might have the biggest impact, a blood drive immediately came to mind.

Alec went to Avery Dennison in June and volunteered during their blood drive to understand what all goes into the day of a blood drive. He helped escort people into and out of security as well as set up and tear down after the drive.

Alec is hosting this event for the Leaders Save Lives Program for the Red Cross in which he will learn leadership skills, volunteer hours, a gift card and be entered to win a scholarship.

Alec is working at the Belle Springs golf course for the summer.
