The Central Kentucky Blood Center visited campus Tuesday and Wednesday for its annual blood drive. According to Lyndall Large, blood drive mobile team leader, the Blood Center has visited Eastern for at least the past 10 years. Large said 162 donors were registered to give blood on Tuesday and Wednesday’s drive was off to a good start. “I’ve always felt the No. 1 reason (to give blood) is that it is just the right thing to do,” Large said. “It actually saves lives.” For those who missed the blood drive, Large suggests finding mobile blood drives in the area or visiting the Blood Center in Lexington.
