HPU High Point University Blood DriveHIGH POINT, N.C., March 22, 2013 – High Point University students, faculty and staff recently showed the true spirit of giving by participating in a blood drive, held by the HPU Volunteer Center. The drive, the fourth this academic year, collected 68 units for the American Red Cross.

“The students were fantastic,” says Patrick Atrim, donor recruiter for the American Red Cross. “Since each unit goes to help 3 patients; that means we were able to positively impact 204 patients.”

“Over the course of the year, we’ve collected enough to save more than 1,100 lives,” says Taylor Bradley, student coordinator of the Volunteer Center. “Next year, we hope to have another four to five drives, with the goal being 500 total units.”

Bradley adds the educational environment at HPU is one of service and giving, and the university community demonstrates that by their involvement in philanthropic events.

“Every blood drive, I am astounded at the number of students who come out to save lives,” Bradley says. “The students of HPU demonstrate great leadership and drive in these kinds of endeavors.”
