Members of Oak Hill Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) celebrated Christmas early. In support of US military serving overseas in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait, FCCLA members made Christmas ornaments to be shipped with fresh Ohio grown evergreens. The early schedule is to ensure the tress and ornaments arrive around the world in time for holiday celebrations. Yards of garland and dozens of tiny ornaments that also hold messages of support and encouragement from the Oak Hill students were packed. It is a privilege for advisor, Mrs. Hamilton, and FCCLA members to continue their support of the Ohio Tree Grower’s project Operation Evergreen.

Would you give blood if you knew someone who needed it?
Do you know someone who's needed blood? Most likely you do, or if not, you will, as every two seconds someone needs blood.
Blood products can be a precious, lifesaving gift for someone in need — perhaps a mother with a cancer diagnosis, a father involved in a horrible accident, or a premature baby struggling to take his or her first breaths.
Each day, patients rely on blood and platelets donated by caring donors. But what if there aren't enough blood products available to meet patient needs? It could happen if enough people aren't donating regularly.
On a daily basis, the American Red Cross needs to collect approximately 17,000 blood donations to keep pace with patient needs. Will you join the ranks of those who give? You can make a lifesaving difference in about an hour's time.
Learn more about blood donation and schedule an appointment to donate on the Red Cross website or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). You'll be glad you did.
