Congratulations to The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville for an extremely successful blood drive held last week with record numbers participating! The Southeastern Community Blood Center (SCBC) bus from Marianna, Florida, was strategically parked outside of the Wellness Center on Tuesday and Wednesday October 15-16 to accommodate the students, faculty, and staff who are always so supportive of the blood drive. According to representatives from the SCBC, they received more 60 units of blood making the drive a huge success and a tremendous blessing for those individuals who find themselves in situations needing blood.

Social media sites were filled with BCF students posting pictures of the limited edition incentive t-shirts they received from giving blood. The attractive t-shirts were of a cartoonish looking zombie stating, "Save the Humans, Donate Blood."

Several BCF students were able to participate for the first time while others were repeat donors who never miss an opportunity to participate and make a difference in someone’s life. “It’s important to give blood because it can save lives,” stated BCF student Katie Davis.
