AHMEDNAGAR, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011: Blood is thicker than water and so after creating a rapport with the MoRD project students, Don Bosco Community College, Ahmednagar organized a blood donation camp for the students. It was an eye opener for many of them as they had neither seen nor given blood in their lifetime. It was a long awaited programme of the college but it was held at the time when the number of students was less, as many were already placed in jobs. Nineteen boys along with the director and some members from the staff donated blood.
Dr. Gujarathi, in charge of Anadrishiji Blood Bank said, “The number is not important but the awareness among the students is what is important.” All the donors received a certificate and the college received a memento from the blood bank. Don Bosco Community College has decided that it would conduct the blood donation camp for every batch. The effort and the gesture of saving life were duly appreciated by some of the parishioners of St. Anne’s Church who too donated their blood.
Fr. Briston thanked the students as it was also their last day in college before they could be placed. He said, “I appreciate your parting gift for the college as well as the society.”
