Over the last 3 years, VI’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee has collected almost 200 pints of blood. The committee is working with The American Red Cross to host another blood drive on campus. For this drive, student volunteers hope to receive 40 donations. High Schools and colleges account for about 30% of donated blood. VI Sport Management Department Coordinator Nikki Stewart says, “That is quite an accomplishment and I am so proud to work with these students.”
The American Red Cross will be at VI in the Smith-Canter Gymnasium on Thursday, Nov. 7, from 10 am – 3 pm taking donations. The Student Athlete Advisory Committee is looking for volunteers to work the blood drive as well as donors. To volunteer, contact Nikki Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org or 276-466-7995.
