PIEDMONT, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Wren Hurricane Navy JROTC cadets are calling on the community to donate blood in support of a fellow classmate who was hit by a car and seriously injured on the first day of school.

Anderson District One said the “Blue & Gold” Homecoming Blood Drive will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at Wren High School. Each unit of blood will earn a $10 donation, and all proceeds will be donated to help Huston and his family.

Huston Stevenson was starting his first day at Wren Middle School when he was hit by a driver in the parking lot of Wren High School on Aug. 16. He now remains in the hospital and has a long road to recovery, which means a lot of medical bills.

Anyone who would like to donate must be at least 16 years old and have parental consent.
