The American Red Cross sponsors two blood drives per year on campus, offering students a chance to help others.
Missouri Baptist University will be hosting a blood drive from noon to 4 p.m. today (Thursday, April 3), in the Sports and Recreational Complex.
Sponsored by the American Red Cross, MBU hosts a blood drive every semester, offering an opportunity for students to serve their community.
Each time, American Red Cross volunteers provide a comfortable atmosphere and an enjoyable experience.
American Red Cross has 50 years of experience, deep community connections and a network of nationwide resources to make every drive successful.
Students generally have a positive experience with the blood drive.
“It’s definitely worth sitting for 20 minutes and losing a pint of blood to know that what I’m doing will save three people’s lives,” said Malorie Carr, a sophomore human services major, who has given blood twice in the past and plans on donating today. “It’s such a small price to pay for such a big reward.”
If anyone is interested in giving blood who cannot make it to MBU’s drive today, go to redcrossblood.org to find out where the next drive will be.
