Jefferson Davis Campus sponsors hospitalized children during annual spring blood drive

Student Alyssa Hornsby participates in the fall blood drive held at MGCCC’s Jefferson Davis Campus.

The Jefferson Davis Campus of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is hosting a spring blood drive through Mississippi Blood Services in the campus gymnasium February 7-8. The event will last from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day, and the public is invited to participate.

“We are sponsoring four children from Blair E. Batson’s Children Hospital,” said Rachelle Vecchio, Student Activities coordinator at the Jefferson Davis Campus. “Each child is battling a form of cancer. If we reach 100 blood donations, each family will receive a $10,000 sponsorship through Mississippi Blood Services to use toward their blood products. We encourage all MGCCC employees, students and community members to help support these children.”

For more information about the blood drive, contact Rachelle Vecchio at 228.897.3945.
