Johnson University to host blood drive, Friday

KNOXVILLE – Johnson University is holding a blood drive Feb. 19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Phillips-Welshimer Gymnasium.

Students interested are encouraged to go to this site or call (864) 524-3074 to make an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome but will not be prioritized.

Johnson University prides itself on its community-building and its heart for service. This Friday, it is providing an opportunity for all students to help the community by donating their blood.

Karunia Been, sophomore in the Global Community and Health program and assistant to Johnson’s school nurse, Kealy Mead, encourages students to take time out of their day to give to the community.

“The blood drive is important, because Medic is low on several blood types, and this provides a wonderful opportunity for students to support the community,” Been said. “Donating blood isn’t hard. If you are willing and able please consider participating in the blood drive.”

Students who donate will be gifted a limited edition long sleeve shirt and a coupon for a free appetizer at Texas Roadhouse for their participation in helping the community.
