CSS Students Help Save Lives By Donating Blood

DULUTH, Minn. – Students at the College of St. Scholastica are stepping up to give blood in an effort to help save lives especially during a pandemic.

It’s said giving blood can be the one selfless thing any person can do to potentially help another individual.

Many students at the college of St. Scholastica made that commitment to donate their own blood.

“I feel really good. It’s just something that I always wanted to do and I have done it once before, said Melissa Pfeiffer, a sophomore at CSS.

Many of these students say coming together to fill a critical need is a purpose that can unite everyone.

“I think it is something really important, now more so than ever, because we are in a time where a lot of us are in a divide, this is one way to stay connected with people and help those that are sick and in need,” Pfeiffer.

CSS partnered with the memorial blood centers for this event.

Staff members say it’s always satisfying to see people make a pledge to donate.

“With my job, I see the crème of the crop of our country. It really takes something special when people say I am willing to step up and save lives by giving some of my blood to help someone else live,” Paul Charles, a registrar for Memorial Blood Centers.

The willingness of each donor at this blood drive can save at least three lives.

About 50 people signed up to give blood during this event.
