Phi Delt Blood DriveRecently, the active Brothers gathered to take part in a great cause and did more than their fair share.

The Brothers participated in the annual MSU blood drive and were the premier fraternity for the event. Brothers from all classes stepped up to do their part to help the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks collect almost 1,000 pints of blood.

The Brothers were the spotlight Fraternity during the event as they not only had 31 Brothers donate blood, but, had 38 Brothers donate their time to pass out flyers, hang posters, recruit donors, and set-up/clean-up the event each day. Through their efforts the chapter not only collected almost 100 hours of community service but they helped to save nearly 3,000 lives because each pint of blood is estimated to save 3 lives.

The effort of the chapter and the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is truly remarkable considering the impact that this makes on so many lives. After learning that blood lasts only 40 days, due to an expiration date, the Brothers reiterated their pleasure in assisting such a great organization and look forward to helping again next year.
