On November 7th, 2012 Hofstra University worked with Long Island Blood Services to host a blood drive. At Hofstra’s drive, held in the Sondra and David S. Mack Student Center, 375 donors were registered and over 350 pints of blood were collected. The Hofstra community worked together to encourage people to donate blood in response to the great need for blood New York and Long Island are seeing after Super Storm Sandy.
“It was great to see the overwhelming response to the blood drive last week. I’m not surprised however, as Hofstra students, staff and faculty are very philanthropic and always looking for ways to help out others in need. From donating blood, to bringing in supplies, or volunteering to help in the recovery efforts of Hurricane Sandy, the Hofstra community stepped up! Hofstra Pride at its best!” - Peter Libman, Dean of Students.
