Newtown High School’s Peer Leadership group sponsored a Bone Marrow Registry program on Thursday, May 23.
Throughout the day Jennifer St Peter, account executive with the Rhode Island Blood Center, was available to assist in registering and collecting cheek cell samples from potential donors, ages 18 to 60, in the auditorium of the high school.
By just after 11 am, Ms St Peter said four people had already registered, and she was expected much more to register during the high school’s lunch waves.
