Fraternities hold bone marrow drive Oct. 9

Alpha Phi Alpha and Lambda Phi Epsilon will sponsor a bone marrow drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 9 in the MSU Union concourse. The event was rescheduled from its original date of today.

Participants in the drive add their names to the national bone marrow registry by filling out a consent form and taking a "finger poke" test to draw a sample of blood.

The National Marrow Donor Program oversees the directory and aims to find minorities to become volunteer donors because 70 percent of people in minority groups who need blood transplants aren't able to find matching marrow within their families.

For more information, call (800) 968-4283, ext. 365.
