Give the gift of life this holiday season by donating blood Wednesday, Dec.4, from noon to 5:45 p.m. in the Student Lounge (next to BJ's) on the first floor of the Campus Center. The blood drive is sponsored by the Pi Kappa Alpha (Pikes) fraternity.

We all expect blood to be there for us, but barely a fraction of those who can give do. Yet sooner or later, virtually all of us will face a time of great vulnerability in which we will need blood. And that time is all too often unexpected. From its beginning, the American Red Cross has formed a community of service, of generous, strong and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves. The honor, spirit and resources of the American people comes forth with neighbors helping neighbors in need -during earthquakes, floods, fires, storms - and also for the deeply personal and often quiet disasters that require a gift of blood.
