The blood drive held on campus Nov. 27 drew 56 units of usable blood from the 84 people who registered to donate, according to the Landis Community Outreach Center. Donations were placed in the supply for surgery patients and victims of accidents, burn and trauma, hemophilia, leukemia, cancer, sickle cell anemia, and thalassemia.

A student Blood Drive Committee organized the event in conjunction with Miller Memorial Blood Center in the Farinon Center Marlo Room: Megan Haughey ’04 (Pittstown, N.J.), Kate Cimino ’02 (Midland Park, N.J.), Matt Bishop ’02 (Harleysville, Pa.), Erika Marshall ’03 (Bonita, Calif.), Monica Patterson ’03 (Drexel Hill, Pa.), and Danielle Cortese ’02 (Pottsville, Pa.).

The committee led sign-ups and publicity, as well as helping the day of the event. Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority provided volunteers for registering donors in Farinon. Student Government allocated funds for publicity.

A number of individuals who wanted to donate blood were deferred for various reasons, including low iron or weight and high or low blood pressure.
