Phone or e-mail:  Contact the blood drive coordinator  (Joanne Aller, 814-865-2896, jam28@psu.edu) to make the appointment for you.

To donate blood you must be at least 16years old, weigh 110 lbs. and be in good health.  

 

*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.

 

 

 


 

 

 

To make a Power Red Cell donation, certain other height and weight criteria must also be met; see link for eligibility questions below.
