Student Senate to sponsor spring blood drive April 17-19

The Northwest Missouri State University’s Student Senate will sponsors its annual three-day spring blood drive in cooperation with the Community Blood Center, beginning Tuesday, April 17.

The blood drive continues through Thursday, April 19, in the Tower View Room, located on the third floor of the J.W. Jones Student Union. Hours are 11 a.m. to 4:30 pm. each day. Interested donors may pre-register online by clicking here.

“Every donation matters, and just one pint of blood can save three people’s lives,” said Madison Adler, the civic service chair for Northwest’s Student Senate and a senior criminology major from Smithville, Missouri.

The Community Blood Center is the primary supplier of blood and blood components in the region, serving more than 65 local hospitals and medical centers. Student Senate annually sponsors fall, winter and spring blood drives in cooperation with the Community Blood Center to boost blood supplies in northwest Missouri.

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.

Northwest has sponsored blood drives since at least 1973 and earned a reputation for its outstanding commitment to supporting blood donation in the region. Student Senate annually sponsors fall, winter and spring blood drives in cooperation with the Community Blood Center to boost blood supplies in northwest Missouri.
