Cal Poly Pomona dominated Mt. SAC in the Out for Blood II blood drive competition held April 28-30. The campus collected 227 pints of blood, resoundingly beating Mt. SAC, which only collected 174.
In October and April, Cal Poly Pomona and Mt. SAC each hosted competitive blood drives in an effort to collect the most blood. While Cal Poly Pomona lost to Mt. SAC during the October blood drive, 226-260, the Broncos won by 19 units for the total year competition.
“I'd like to extend my deepest gratitude to our campus community for their support of this event, not only toward our valuable donors and volunteers, but to the many individuals who helped to promote and foster this event through publicity and marketing efforts,” said Debbie Jackley, coordinator of Marketing & Health Services Relations. “Despite competing against a campus that has twice the number of students, our donors rose to the challenge and truly demonstrated their Bronco spirit and pride!”
Those who participated in the blood drives received a coupon for a free Chipotle burrito and a music download courtesy of Music Saves Lives.
Student Health Services will have its regular blood drive May 13 and May 21. Every donor will receive a free backstage pass to this years Vans Warped Tour with the purchase of a concert ticket.
