ODK Hosts Blood Drive at NEC


            Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) held New England College’s first blood drive since 2019 on Wednesday, October 12th. The honor society represents campus leaders of today and community leaders of tomorrow. These leaders hosted The American Red Cross in the Simon Great Room, where they took blood from forty-six members of the NEC community.

            ODK’s President, Jake Natola, was more than pleased with the turnout.

“It was great to see the community come out and donate to such a great cause. There will be another blood drive in April, and we are hopeful for another awesome turnout. We would love to continue this event in the future for students to participate in the community,” Natola said.

Natola holds himself to high standards and is an active community member.

            “Knowing that I was potentially helping someone in need gave me a sense of fulfillment. The process was very smooth and easygoing. Personally, I really enjoyed it. Everyone was nice and even funny at times during the signing process. Overall, it was a very eventful and fun experience,” said freshman Jessie Parker-Boatwright.

            For possible future participants, make sure to eat nutritious foods throughout the day. Hemoglobin is taken during the checkup and will determine eligibility for donation. Snacks and water are provided after donation and don’t forget your identification.
