October blood drive best ever

The Oct. 9 blood drive held at Northeast State marked a record day of giving by donors.   Northeast State had 121 people register to give blood with 91 good units being collected at the main campus. The Northeast State at Kingsport site registered 34 and collected 24 good units.

Student Club winners for recruiting the most donors for the drive are:

First Place – TRIO Club ($100 to their club fund)

Second Place – Art Club ($75 to their club fund)

Third Place – PTK Club ($50 to their club fund)

Currently we are in first place in the competition to be the college that collects the most units, but all 3 colleges have one more drive! So, mark your calendar for Dec. 5 to give again. How awesome to give your gift of life during the Christmas season.

If you are unable to give on the dates the blood mobile comes to campus, you may go to the most convenient Marsh Regional Blood Collection Center and donate, asking them to credit it to Northeast State. Marsh Regional Blood Center operates three collection centers where you can give your gift of life.
