Last Tuesday, Mesivta Ateres Yaakov once again hosted an incredibly successful blood drive on the mesivta’s premises. The drive, benefiting Bikur Cholim of Maimonides Hospital, was organized by seniors Davi Levene, Auriel Chamoulian, and Dovi Rogoff, whose outstanding efforts to encourage donations really made the event a success. Despite inclement weather, the drive still drew in throngs of people from the community excited to donate and assist in this worthy cause. When all was tallied, the closing count was 96 pints. The mesivta thanks its student organizers, Bikur Cholim, and all those who participated. This blood drive brings the total blood contributed in the past three years to almost 600 pints. Yasher ko’ach!
