Last month, Mount Mercy Academy students and staff participated in their semi-annual Unyts Bloodmobile. More than 40 pints of blood were collected by the Unyts Team. Students prepared for donation by educating themselves on what steps they need to take to promote a successful blood donation. Students who donate learn their blood type and are educated as to the importance of blood donation for our community.

In celebration of Thanksgiving, the Donate Life Club planned a prayer service for the Mercy students and faculty. John Dedloff, father of sophomore Molly, will be the speaker at the service. Mr. Dedloff is a heart transplant recipient. This annual prayer service focuses on the impact or blood, organ and tissue donation and the impact such donations have on our community. A Spring 2014 blood drive is also planned for the Mercy Community.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
