There is a critical need for blood in Southern California, says the American Red Cross, which issued a rare area-wide blood-supply alert July 10. At that time, there was just an eight-hour supply (57 pints) of O-Positive blood available for all Southern California hospitals. A five- to seven-day supply is generally considered "adequate." The supply situation has barely improved in the weeks since as there has been a significant drop in blood donations in Southern California.

In an effort to come to the aid of students affected by Hurricane Katrina, a leadership class of seventh- and eighth-graders at Dwyer Middle School put lessons in teamwork and organization to use. Danielle Almeida's 34 students began their undertaking by distributing fliers to classrooms around school, asking for donations of backpacks to be loaded with supplies.

Trent Sladics had never given blood before, but the Newport Harbor High School senior had a personal reason to do so Wednesday. "My grandpa almost died, and he got saved by blood," Trent, 17, explained as he sat inside St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church with a red band around his elbow. Not everyone who stopped by the church had had a blood transfusion in the family, but they had an important cause regardless. The six-hour blood drive, held by Newport Harbor's Student Political Action Committee, was intended to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina.
