With school starting and summer ending, it’s time to think about giving blood. Did you know that when a person donates blood, they can save up to three lives? During the summer months and holidays, blood donations dramatically decrease although the number of patients typically needing blood increases.
To assist with the blood shortage this time of year, Houston Methodist Hospital and Lone Star College-University Park will host a blood drive on Sept. 4 and 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Building 12, second floor. Students, staff and community members are encouraged to donate. To be eligible, donors must be at least 17 years of age; weigh 110 pounds, bring a photo ID and eat a healthy meal at least two to four hours before donating.
Shop your campus bookstore for all of your semester needs. The LSC-University Park bookstore offers new, used and digital versions of textbooks. You can also rent a text book for the semester for approximately 50% less than the cost of a new book!
LSC-University Park bookstore staff can set up a rental account for students with just a State-issued ID and credit card or branded debit card other than Discover for collateral. Students are charged additional fees only if they fail to return the book by Dec. 16, 2013.
For more information, call the bookstore at 281-401-5323.
