Staller Center for the Arts was given an appreciation award from the New York Blood Center (NYBC) in recognition of their support with the West Campus Blood Drive hosted by the Student Blood Drive Committee. For every person who donated, Staller Center provided two movie vouchers for its Annual Movie Series.
New York Blood Center professional staff present the award to Staller Center’s Daria Carioscia and Paul Newland, with student members of the Student Blood Drive Committee.
“All in all, success is linked to the many giving hearts here at SBU. We are a family – and our amazing students always respond when called upon to serve others,” said Kathleen Valerio, Peer Education Program Coordinator for the Division of Student Health, Wellness and Prevention Services, and Advisor to the Student Blood Drive Committee. “It is an honor to support life-saving efforts with collaborations on our campus. Supported by students, faculty and staff, our blood drives serve to raise awareness of the need to donate, and present a unique opportunity to contribute to efforts saving lives.” Read more here.
