Blood drive Tuesday hosted by SJMC students

facebookIn the spirit of giving (and earning an A), some SJMC students are asking students, faculty and staff to literally give from their hearts this season. Students in Grace Capwell’s PR Campaigns class are hosting a student-run blood drive on Tuesday Dec. 1  from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the LBJ Student Center (room 3-15.1).

Along with the blood drive, they are also running a Twitter contest — everyone who participates is eligible to win a Jam Wireless Speaker. The following rules apply:

  1. Take a selfie donating blood
  2. Tweet the selfie, tag and follow @centralTXblood
  3. Use #TXSTstudentsgive

Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments can also be made here. The Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas is located in Austin and keeps all donated blood local. With the upcoming holiday season, the blood center needs more donations to keep up with the demand. According to the center, each pint of blood can help save three lives of local people.
