HIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 26, 2014 – High Point University students, faculty and staff impacted 450 lives by donating 150 units at the university’s first blood drive of the year.
Each year, the university holds multiple blood drives to support the need at the American Red Cross.
“We began the year with a strong turnout, and I can’t wait to see how much our students give back to this worthy cause throughout the rest of the year,” says Meaghan Reney, student president of HPU’s Volunteer Center. “Just one hour of a supporter’s time and one donation could save three lives and benefit so many more.”
“Our students have given back to countless individuals through these events, and we are honored to support the Red Cross,” says Gail Tuttle, vice president for Student Life.
