University to Host Blood Drive on March 1
Post University freshman Anthony Barbieri, a 2022 Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America, is on a mission to encourage people to roll up their sleeves and donate blood. Anthony, who goes by AJ, is a Gaming and Esports Management major at the University, says it’s a rewarding experience to help save someone’s life.
While still a high school student in Waterbury Public School System, Barbieri completed his Eagle Scout project by organizing a blood drive. At that drive, done in collaboration with the American Red Cross, individuals donated over 25 units of blood.
On Wednesday, March 1, Barbieri will be encouraging University faculty, staff and students, including his fellow Esports majors to roll up their sleeves to support the American Red Cross Blood Drive happening in the Eagle’s Nest located in the Leever Student Center on the Post University campus located at 800 Country Club Road. This blood drive is open to the community and will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“It’s quite personal to me to organize this blood drive because just one person giving blood can save up to three lives. It’s such a small amount of time you can give, but you can make such a significant impact on another person’s life and provide an important service to our community. I will be donating my blood at this drive and encourage all of you to do so as well,” said Barbieri.

American Red Cross Fact About Blood Needs
Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. Whether a patient receives whole blood, red cells, platelets or plasma, this lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation.
- Every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood and or platelets.
- Approximately 29,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day in the U. S.
- A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 units of blood
- One donation can help save more than one life.
Blood and platelets cannot be manufactured; they can only come from volunteer donors.

Have you ever thought of dropping everything and going on an adventure that caused you to exist out of your comfort zone?
These four friends Ammar, Thomas, Derin, and Matt started their Youtube channel called the “Yes Theory” in 2015. They all started as strangers but had one common idea which was discovering the greatest moments and making the deepest connections with people all over the world. Today, they have cultivated a community of millions of people who act on discomfort in order to achieve a fulling life.
One episode in particular, that perfectly summarizes the purpose and mission of their channel is all about taking a chance on the unknown and meeting life-changing people along the way. This episode is called “Spinning the Globe and Flying Wherever it Lands”. These four friends do exactly that, they spin a globe and go to the exact place it lands. What they didn’t know was that not only were they going to change some lives but their lives were also going to be changed for the better.
