The current situation in Israel is not a simple one. Tensions are high in the streets. People are looking over their shoulders and listening to the news. Unfortunately, with this situation comes Magen David Adom’s (MDA) plea for blood donations. Every year MDA visits Boys Town Jerusalem to collect blood donations from the older students (18 years and above). Seventeen year olds require parental permission to donate. On Thursday, October 15th, MDA once again called upon BTJ as terror incidents continue to unfold. As always, Boys Town, its students, teachers and staff stepped up to volunteer.
