HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 6, 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 collected 71 units for the American Red Cross.
Senior Taylor Bradley is the president of HPU’s Volunteer Center. She says the blood collected at the drive could save more than 200 lives – a fact that is especially important as we head into the holiday season.
“The need for blood increases dramatically during this time,” says Bradley. “I think the drive served as an important reminder of how easy it is to give back to the community. During a time when we are facing the threat of a blood shortage, our students continue to step up and help however they can.”
HPU students have donated enough blood to save more than 630 lives this semester alone.
