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.
