Peru State Student Senate, Biology Club to Host Red Cross Blood Mobile Thursday, April 15

 

(Peru, Neb.) The Peru State College (PSC) Student Senate and Biology Club will host a blood drive for the American Red Cross from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, April 15 in the Student Center on campus.

Students, faculty, staff and the public are encouraged to participate.

Newly-Elected Student Senate President and Blood Drive Coordinator Elizabeth Zito, a sophomore from Lincoln, said, “Blood is a perishable product that can only come from generous donors. By donating blood, you can make a difference in the lives of patients in your community and throughout the nation. As Americans become increasingly mobile, you can feel good knowing that when you donate blood through the Red Cross, you may be helping patients not only in your local community, but also your family and friends across the country. The more you share, the more you get back. Give blood!”

All blood types are needed. A blood donor card, driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. 

For additional information or to make an appointment, contact Zito at 402-872-2329 or elzito@acornmail.peru.edu. Donors can also sign up online at www.givelife.org.
