On November 17, the Hilbert Center for Career and Community Engagement hosted a Donate Life Summit on the Hilbert campus. The event welcomed over 70 high school students from seven local high schools to learn about the importance of organ donation in our communities.
This event was held in partnership with Unyts, Western New York’s only organ, eye, tissue, and community blood center. Unyts established the Donate Life Club in 2004 to assist groups of students at area high schools in the planning, development, and implementation of a campaign to increase awareness about organ, tissue, and blood donation among their peers.
By participating in workshops during the event, the 70+ high school students who attended Hilbert’s Donate Life Club Summit in November were able to receive the knowledge necessary to help spread accurate information about the importance of organ, eye, tissue, and blood donation to their school and home communities. The ultimate goal of Unyts and the Donate Life Club is to establish donation as a cultural norm.
Hilbert is proud to be hosting another Donate Life Club Summit on Tuesday, December 18th. For more information, please contact Rachel Wozniak at email@example.com or by phone at (716) 926-8929.
Hawk Radio is throwing a party – and everyone’s invited! Join the Hawk Radio crew and special alumni guests for the Hawk Radio Legacy Party in the lower level of the Campus Center on Thursday, November 29th from 7:00-10:00 PM.
The party will feature a special LIVE broadcast with former on-air personalities, free food, a photo booth for all your Instagram-worthy moments, and games. Oh, and did we mention free food?
While you’re feeling the music at the party, you can also feel good about attending the event by donating much needed items to Compass House, a local organization near and dear to Hilbert’s heart. Hawk Radio will be collecting donations of personal items throughout the event to benefit this Western New York based not-for-profit, which provides young men and women shelter, counseling, and other services. While any donation is appreciated, a complete wish list of items can be found on the Compass House Website.
If you can’t make it to the celebration in person, you can prevent FOMO by listening in to the special live broadcast on Hawk Radio from any web browser (on any computer or mobile device) at http://hawkradio.hilbert.edu.
