Students at Bucyrus Elementary School are learning what it means to give the gift of life. The school teamed up with the American Red Cross to host a "Pint Size Hero" blood drive Monday in the school cafeteria which resulted in a great turnout of community support. The blood drive is aimed at introducing children to the importance of donating blood and raising awareness about the ongoing need for blood donors. "We have three blood drives a year. Kids recruit a donor that has to be at least 16 years old. They bring them in and the student receives a little incentive for bringing someone to help save lives," event coordinator and librarian Diane Kaple said. "This is a wonderful program getting kids to understand giving the gift of life and making them feel good to a community service," Kaple said. Parents, guardians and the community were encouraged to participate in the blood drive. Every student who invited an adult to come and donate was recognized as a Pint Size Hero. The students also received an American Red Cross thank you gift. Donors also had the opportunity to win a pair of Ohio State University football tickets and a $200 Visa gift card courtesy of Suburban Propane.
