Blood Drive


Contributed by Cynthia Smith

It's that time of the year again -- Monday December 6, is our winter holiday blood drive from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm in Emerson Suites in Campus Center.

Imagine that you are a doctor and your patients -- a three-year-old facing emergency heart surgery, a trauma victim, and a sickle-cell patient needing regular transfusions -- all need blood urgently. But the supplies are low and there might not be enough for everyone. So you have to decide, who will get the blood, and who won't. Now imagine that one of these scenarios involves your son or daughter.

Please help our community blood supply and donate at our drive. The blood supply is very fragile and doctors are sometimes forced to make very difficult decisions just like these.

Did you know that?

You are eligible to donate if you meet the following criteria:

Please make an appointment at our blood drive on Monday December 6. E-mail or stop by the sign-up table in Textor hall during November 30 through December 3 from 11:00 am-3:00 pm to make an appointment.

Be sure to eat well the day of donation, drink plenty of fluids and a get a good nights sleep.

Thank you for your generosity and donation!
