Luis Montero had never donated blood before and he didnít know what to expect. He did know, however, that he wanted to help out those in need. According to Bloodnet USA, each pint donated may be used to save up to three lives. Montero, a junior at East Bay High School in Gibsonton was among nearly 200 students who donated during a two day visit to the school by Bloodnet USA. Donors must be at least 17 years old and not have donated blood in the past 56 days. For information about donating, call Bloodnet USA at 800-683-8355.
