By 8:30 a.m., Monday, 168 students had signed up for a blood drive at the school, which was conducted by the Indiana Blood Center, a non-profit organization based out of Indianapolis.
"This is about normal. It's what we expect," Indiana Blood Center Field Representative Kari Fletcher said.
The blood drive was scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and conclude at 2 p.m.
By signing up to give blood, students received a free breakfast sandwich from Hardee's through a deal Fletcher struck up with the franchise's district manager, based in Danville.
"(The breakfast sandwiches) are for (the students) as an incentive," Fletcher said.
Fletcher said field representatives travel statewide going to schools and other organizations setting up blood drives.
"We try to get the (students) to give back to the community by giving blood," Fletcher said. "The students are pretty excited."
She said the entire process takes up to 45 minutes.
This is the second time this school year the blood center has been at Northview, as Fletcher said the organization was at the school in October.
