Amy is a familiar smiling face at our blood drives. Amy has volunteered for almost 100 blood drives in the last four years! Although Amy is a busy mom and SSUSD Board of Education member, she continues to contribute. Amy helps keep our busy blood drives flowing smoothly. We all lead very full and busy lives these days, so to all of you who find the time to donate your lifesaving blood, we celebrate your community service this month.”
