NEC Athletics and the Red Cross team up
The New England Athletic Department continued their partnership with the American Red Cross hosting the seventh campus-wide blood drive since 2005 on Wednesday, Oct. 15.
The drive was a huge success as the NEC and Henniker community donated 59 pints of useable blood, including 29 first-time donors. NEC student-athletes volunteered from morning until night setting up the event, running the event and breaking down the event. All those who donated received a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut and Sodexho Food Services donated beverages and snacks for those who donated blood.
Overall the event was a great success and it was great to have so many people come together for a great cause.
