HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 15, 2014 – High Point University students, faculty and staff helped impact 219 lives by donating 73 pints of blood at the annual Spring Blood Drive, held by the HPU Volunteer Center. The donated blood will benefit the American Red Cross.
“The beginning of the spring semester is always busy, but the turnout at this drive was greater than ever,” says Meaghan Reney, president of HPU’s Volunteer Center. “Our students never fail to rise to a challenge. An hour of a supporter’s time could save three lives and benefit so many more. The amount of volunteers and donors who participated from multiple groups on campus exemplifies how highly our community values giving back and helping others.”
“Our students understand the importance of their donation and the gift of life it will provide,” says Gail Tuttle, vice president of the Office of Student Life. “We are so fortunate to be surrounded by a campus community that continually gives for those in need.”
