On Dec. 6 from 11:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in the Stokes Student Center Community Room, the freshman class will sponsor a blood drive to benefit Hurricane Sandy victims.
The Freshman Council, which is made up of representative from each Pfeiffer Journey class, was charged with forming a proposal for a spring service project. In addition to planning service opportunities for next semester, the council felt compelled to react to the disaster in the Northeast by coordinating a blood drive in response to the immediate need for blood.
â€œI am excited about everyone coming together as a community for a good cause that will help those in need,â€ said Ashley King, a freshman representative who is helping coordinate the blood drive.
