Csar Chvez blood drive by BGSUs LSU was bloody successful

By Alaina Buzas, Special to La Prensa 

 

The Latino Student Union brought the 2nd National Csar E. Chvez Blood Drive Challenge to Bowling Green State University for the first time last week.

 

Samantha Pea, Vice President of LSU, said that by participating in the challenge, LSU hoped to educate students on the life and work of activist Csar Chvez, while helping students save lives.

LSU started the blood drive with a goal of 100 donors. Over the course of two days, Pea said 303 donors contributed to the drive.

 

I felt extremely appreciate of all the support we got from students on campus.

People that had never heard of Csar Chvez or LSU came out and helped, even if they couldnt donate blood, Pea said.

 

Pea even said a lot of people at the event, held on Chvezs birthday, were unaware of why he is important to Latino history. She said the ignorance comes from Chvezs story not being taught in schools. At the event, members of LSU tried to teach people about his lifes work.

 

I think we did a good job educating people on who he was and what he stood for, Pea said. I hope people take the time to realize what he did why it is important to recognize his legacy.

 

A citywide step was also taken to further teach the community about the life of Chvez.

 

At noon on March 31, 2010, Bowling Green Mayor John Quinn made an official proclamation of the day as Csar Chvez Day for the city.

 

In Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama made a similar announcement.

 

The president proclaimed the day a national holiday, encouraging all U.S.-Americans to observe this day with appropriate service, community, and education programs to honor Csar Chvezs enduring legacy.

 

BGSU student Jos Gmez said he appreciated the day being recognized in the city.

 

Its like Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Gmez said. Only were celebrating Latino pride, Latino heritage.

 

Gmez, a pre-med major, recognized the blood drive as a good way to honor Chvezs life of service. Youre saving three peoples lives by donating blood, Gmez said.

 

The challenge, sponsored by the College Assistance Migrant Program Alumni Association, had a donation goal of 5,000 units. Over 100 schools nationwide participated in the challenge, with BGSU and Ohio State University being the only schools in Ohio.
