Torrey Pines students Nethra Mahendran and Minseo Kwan organized a drive to collect lifesaving blood for the San Diego Blood Bank on Jan. 15 at Del Mar Highlands Town Center. The students had hoped to have 22 participants and were thrilled to have 25 donors that day.

Nethra and Minseo created Operation Bloodmobile, a project dedicated to supporting San Diego Blood Bank’s greatest needs, including a new bloodmobile. In addition to their blood donations, they collected $90 that day for a total of $1,000 in funds raised.
