Each semester the Red Cross and BYU-Idaho work together to put on a blood drive to help people that are truly in need. The event runs smoothly and professionally because of the work of the student volunteers and the Red Cross employees. Because of the synergy that is present between these two groups, the event continues to happen and brings in many people. Some of the donors come each and every semester because of their love to donate. This video looks at the ways that the event is set up as well as what it is like to donate.
