Office of VPR & Institutes Blood Drive
|Date||11/09/16 9:00am to 2:30pm|
|Location||N201 Millennium Science Complex|
The blood drive on November 9 at the Millennium Science Complex will be part of the 23rd Annual Penn State - Michigan State Blood Challenge--so every pint donated will help Penn State beat Michigan State in the Challenge! And whichever side wins, life-saving blood will be collected to replenish supplies in both areas--so the big winners are the patients in need. So make your appointment today--receive a Penn State-Michigan State Challenge t-shirt and enjoy some great refreshments, all while helping to save lives. Your support is so important and very much appreciated!
Make your appointment for our November Blood Drive today! Both whole blood and double-red donations will be accepted. Donation is easy and takes no more than one hour of your time (about 1 ½ hrs. for double-reds).
To make an appointment*:
Online: Go to http://www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code 'PSU' (or zip code 16802) in the 'Find a Blood Drive' field on the upper right. A list of blood drives in our area will come up; choose 'Millennium Science Complex' on November 9. Click to schedule an appointment on the left; you will need to create a username and password the first time. For subsequent donations, you will be able to log in to your own page and go from there. Click the time you want for your appointment, and you will receive a confirming email. You are going to save a life!
*Appointments are strongly encouraged--here is why: Staffing for the drive is based on how many appointments are made prior to the drive, so while walk-ins will be accommodated, we are more likely to stay on schedule if the majority of donors have appointments.
