The Missouri State Journal is a weekly program keeping you in touch with Missouri State University.

Helping to save someone’s life is as easy as donating blood.

You will have the opportunity to do this Jan. 23-25, 2018, when Missouri State University hosts a blood drive on campus in honor of National Blood Donor Month.

The event is jointly organized by Missouri State’s Gamma Sigma Sigma and Community Blood Center of the Ozarks.
