Northlake Hills Elementary School broke the national record for the most pints of blood collected at an American Red Cross blood drive in September.

The school collected 178 pints of blood, surpassing the 163 collected during the 2010 blood drive that is annually sponsored by the Castaic school’s Parent-Teacher Association.

In 2009, the school earned the distinction of holding the largest single-day elementary-school blood drive in the entire country with 163 pints of blood.

To achieve the accomplishment this year, the Castaic school launched the Pint-Sized Heroes program organized by the American Red Cross.

The Pint-Sized Heroes program is a community-service program that introduces children to the importance of donating blood.

As a result of the drive, Northlake Hills’ students, parents and supporters set a record for its efforts.
