Student Senate, Community Blood Center sponsoring blood drive

The Student Senate at Northwest Missouri State University is again sponsoring a three-day blood drive in cooperation with the Community Blood Center to boost blood supplies in northwest Missouri.

The blood drive will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27; Wednesday, Jan. 28; and Thursday, Jan. 29; in the Tower View Room, located on the third floor of the J.W. Jones Student Union.

Interested donors may register online by visiting www.savealifenow.org. There, click the “Schedule an appointment” icon and enter the code: NWMSU.

Community Blood Center is the primary supplier of blood and blood components to local hospitals and medical centers. Blood from volunteer donors assists cancer patients recovering from the rigors of chemotherapy, auto accident victims needing blood for emergency surgeries or mothers needing blood as the result of traumatic birth deliveries. It is estimated three lives are saved with every unit collected.

“Northwest has always helped us pull out of the critical state during the winter months,” the Community Blood Center’s Betty Tinker said. “We need the help of each student to bring the blood supply to safe levels.”

For more information, contact Student Senate at ssenate@nwmissouri.edu or 660.562.1218 or the Community Blood Center at 800.245.7035.
