The drive took place at the WUHS campus on Seagrape Drive from 8AM-3PM. No appointments were needed and all were welcomed to come out and support the cause.

Students of WUHS did a phenomenal job in organizing the event and making all that came out to donate feel quite comfortable through the entire process. Over sixty people came out to support the drive. At the end of the day WUHS was able to donate over 31 units of blood to the Belize Blood Bank. One of the largest amounts collected through drives on the island in quite a while.
