On Tuesday, Sept. 10 and Wednesday, Sept. 11 (both days, 12 to 6 p.m.) in Union 201, the Nursing Department will be holding a 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive in cooperation with the N.Y. Blood Center Bank. There is a tremendous need for blood, and organizers are hoping to get at least 100 pints of blood during the two-day drive. Students will also be registering volunteers for the Bone Marrow Registry — all it takes is a simple cheek swab to be added to the registry, and you could be called to save a life! At the end of the drive, all donors will be eligible to win a raffle prize: a $100 American Express gift certificate. For more information, email Nancy Cherofsky.
Wagner College’s Student Government Association will be sponsoring the Walk for Lupus, to raise funds for the Lupus Foundation of America, on Sunday, May 5 from 12 to 2 p.m. on the Sutter Oval.
