ANNOUNCEMENTS

A BIG THANK YOU TO STUDENT BLOOD DONORS!
The SPU Blood Drive on Friday, February 1, registered 64 donors and collected 54 successful units of blood for a potential benefit of up to 162 different patients here in western Washington. When factoring in the relief and appreciation of friends, family and care providers for those patients, the collective amount of goodwill the students at Seattle Pacific University have engendered in our community becomes a powerful force in a lot of lives. The students who gave on the bloodmobile deserve the thanks of a community.
