Students, staff, and members of the local community gave the gift of life at the Mount Saint Mary College blood drive on October 2 and 3.

Along with medical professionals from the New York Blood Center, members of the college’s Nursing Student Union (NSU) were among those assisting at the event. The Mount’s NSU was recognized by the New York Blood Center last year for their frequent blood drive efforts, having facilitated the collection of hundreds of pints of blood in the last three years alone.
