If your Chapter is looking for another service event to add to their schedule or plan for the next academic year, you can hold a blood drive.
That’s exactly what the Beta Xi Chapter at Miami University did twice this year. The Chapter co-sponsored the event with a local blood bank, Community Blood Center. Members in the Chapter were tasked with several jobs:
- Promoting the blood drive on social media
- Recruiting their friends to donate
- Working the donor table
- Giving blood themselves
At one of the blood banks, 17 Members worked the donor table and handed out cookies, juice, water and t-shirts to those who donated. While 20 Members gave blood.
According to the Chapter, the blood drive was very successful, exceeding the quota given to them by the Community Blood Center, with more than 58 units of blood donated.
