OVPR Institutes Blood Drive

Date 06/22/17 9:00am to 2:30pm
Location N201 Millennium Science Complex
Event URL http://www.redcrossblood.org/

For this drive, the Red Cross will give a T-shirt and $2 Jersey Mike's Subs coupon to each presenting donor. Summer is always a tough time for recruiting blood donors, with people on vacation and students home for the summer--and at the same time, the need for blood is often higher with the increase in activity during the summer--so your support is so important and very much appreciated!

Make your appointment for our June Blood Drive today!  Both whole blood and power red donations will be accepted.

Every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood--Make your appointment today to give blood at the OVPR Institutes Blood Drive!  See information above on how to schedule your appointment using the app, on line, or call the drive coordinator.


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


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