The American Red Cross collected 42 pints of blood at the blood drive held in Morris Library's 1st Floor Rotunda last Friday, February 28!  That is not only 9 units more than the goal that was set, but also far surpasses the record of 36 pints that was set in Morris Library back in November of 2012.

Considering that the Red Cross has had to cancel more than 1,000 blood drives due to the severe winter weather over the last few months, this couldn't have come at a better time!  Thanks to all those who helped set up and publicize the event, and special thanks to all the people who bravely bared their arms for the needles.  You guys are heroes!
