Numerous UMKC staff and faculty members either donated blood at the 7/25/12 UMKC summer blood drive or helped get the word out about it, lending their support and communication channels to make the drive a success. SCE is proud our faculty and staff participated in drive which attracted 57 UMKC donors, with 29 first time donors. Fifty units of blood were collected, surpassing CBC’s goals for our first UMKC annual summer blood drive. Jane Vogl of SCE served as the CBC site coordinator for this drive. She noted how heartwarming it was to have donors make appointments with every appeal that went out and that the results are reflective of our giving, caring and socially responsible UMKC community. Teamwork was really important as the summer drive’s success relies heavily on UMKC staff and faculty donors.
