Blood is essential for modern medical practices and there is always a shortage of available blood. Two Broadview University Orem Students decided to do something about it. Students Robert Moellmer and Rosa Galaz talked to the Red Cross who agreed to hold a blood drive on campus. Their goal: 20 pints of blood. They advertised posting on Facebook and signs around campus urging people to sign up. They gave out fruit snacks with the advertisement wrapped around it. On the day of the blood drive, June 6th, only 4 volunteers had signed up.
Despite the poor indicators, they pushed on. By the end of the evening they had gone from 4 signups to 19 pints of blood. Thanks to the Red Cross, thanks to the student of Broadview University, and a special thanks to Rosa Galaz and Robert Moellmer for their valiant efforts.
