HUNTINGTON, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – There was plenty of hope at the Café of Hope in Huntington, as blood drive was held in honor of the girls injured in that parasailing accident.

The business hosted a blood drive in honor of Sidney Good and Alexis Fairchild, two Huntington North High School students who were injured while parasailing in Florida.

Both girls sustained life-threatening injuries as a result of the accident, and continue to recover.

Friends and family encouraged everyone to donate to ensure blood is available for any patient whenever and wherever it's needed.

“I've never seen Huntington come together as well as they did. Not just Huntington, but surrounding areas, you know Fort Wayne, and I mean people from Florida's been here today. So, you know, people have come together from all over the place and it's just amazing," said Michael Fairchild, Alexis’ father.

Alexis was at the blood drive Saturday, and in good spirits.
