Acts of charity often require monetary donation to benefit lives of others in need.

Collection drives like those sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa-Lambda Mu require little more than rolling up one’s sleeve and sharing the gift of life, blood.

According to Sarah Mineau, Phi Theta Kappa-Lambda Mu Vice President of Fellowship, the goal of pints to collect for the Feb. 6 and 7 drive was lowered due to low numbers at the last drive in November of 2011.

Phi Theta Kappa-Lambda Mu, honor society at SC4, will sponsor their next blood drive on Feb. 6 and 7 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the CEM bldg. on campus.

Sarah Mineau, Phi Theta Kappa-Lambda Mu Vice President of Fellowship, said the September 2011 collection drive collected 50 pints of blood.

According to Mineau, their goal of total pints collected was lowered for this drive due to low numbers at the last drive in November. Mineau felt the bad weather during the November 2011 drive kept donors away.

Walk in donors are accepted, however you can avoid wait time by booking your appointment time in advance, says Mineau.
