TISHOMINGO, OK -- It's still a week away, but Tishomingo High School students are prepping for their annual school blood drive.

Oklahoma Blood Institute officials say the Tishomingo blood drive is the largest high school blood drive in the state, and has been for nearly 20 years.

Tishomingo High School Student Council is helping put on the drive, and members say in years past, they've had up to 300 donors.

They hope to top that number this year.

"Every 2 seconds someone needs blood and we have a goal to save 1000 lives, which takes about 330 units of blood, and we've been signing up like crazy and we really need people to come out," said Student Council Vice-President, Laina Marshall.

The blood drive will be held at Tishomingo High School on Friday, November 22nd, from 7 AM to 7 PM.
