BLOOD DRIVE IN HONOR OF BRITTANY MIRICK
Tomorrow is our first opportunity for 2009-10 to give the gift of life through a Blood Drive sponsored by the American Red Cross.It will be Wednesday 8/26 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
We are having the drive in honor of SCC student Brittany Mirick. Many of you may know that Brittany, a freshman resident student from Louisville who is on the softball team, was hospitalized last week and has been diagnosed with a rare and serious blood disorder. She has received a number of blood transfusions already, and will be receiving them several times a week for the near future while she waits for a match to be found for a needed bone marrow transplant. Yesterday, Brittany was able to return home for the time being, but will not be able to come back to SCC this semester. Our donations will go to build up the supply of blood available for Brittany and others who need this life-sustaining gift.
Thank you for considering the above requests. And please keep Brittany and her family in your prayers.
