The Super Sam Foundation and and Fulton High School Student Council came together Wednesday for a blood drive inside the FHS gymnasium. The two-day blood drive continues Thursday.

The American Red Cross is currently testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies.

"We're pretty excited," Super Sam Foundation co-founder Cassie Santhuff said. "Between today and tomorrow we have 160 appointments."

Last year, the Super Sam Foundation's annual blood drive had 104 donations. "And that was our biggest yet," Santhuff said. "This year we partnered with student council. And so we've combined forces and it's already bigger."

Chalk-decorated sidewalks greeted donors as they walked from a busy parking lot into the high school to give blood.

Lindsey Pace-Snook, who has been donating blood since she was in high school, was among those who came to support the Super Sam Foundation.

"First of all, it's for Super Sam," Pace-Snook said. "I'm a big supporter of Super Sam Foundation and I try to get involved any way that I can in the community with Super Sam."

Pace-Snook also has the universal blood type.

"American Red Cross is always calling me to donate," she said. "It try to donate as much as possible. Since the pandemic started, I haven't had a good opportunity, so now I feel like it's a time to get back out here and start donating again."
