SGA Hosts Red Cross Blood Drive

Columbus State University’s Student Government Association hosted a blood drive on Sept. 19 that could save up to 174 lives, according to American Red Cross Account Manager, Johnny Williams.

“The efforts of Columbus State University have always been greatly appreciated and the support will go a long way toward replenishing our blood supply,” Williams said.

In the last 13 years, CSU has held at least three blood drives a year and collected a total of 2,763 units for the Red Cross. The October blood drive, which was planned to assist with hurricane relief efforts, was CSU’s third blood drive of 2017 and collected a total number of 58 productive units.

The next blood drive at CSU is scheduled for Nov. 29.
