Give Blood; Save a Life

The disaster in Joplin is a perfect example of how large quantities of blood can be needed and quick. 

Currently, the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is under a Code Yellow Alert, meaning there is less than a two day supply of blood on ready for use.

But you can help by rolling up your sleeves this Wednesday and donating a little bit of your time...and blood, of course.

The Community Blood Center's Bloodmobile will be coming to the Springfield campus on Wednesday June 15th.

The drive will be from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

A sign up sheet is outside of the Student Council office for people to donate blood.

For those who are unable or do not want to donate blood, there is also a sign up to volunteer your time.

This year, Student Council will be supplying breakfast foods for the first half of the drive and will be having a BBQ for the second half of the drive!
