Please remember, masks are required inside the building! Remember, a single blood donation can help save up to three lives—every donor and every pint counts!

This drive is part of the “Bleed Blue” campaign—when you donate at a “Bleed Blue” drive, you will be entered to win a Penn State Football Experience package!

This drive also supports THON—the Red Cross will donate $5,000 to THON, and credit $1000 to the organizations that recruit the most donors in 5 different categories!

[IMPORTANT NOTE: Though walk-in donations will be accepted, please make an appointment for your donation if at all possible--this will ensure that we are adequately staffed to accommodate everyone who wishes to donate, as the Red Cross staffs the drive based upon the number of appointments made in advance--thanks!]

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

~~Donation is easy and takes no more than one hour of your time (about 1 ½ hrs. for power reds).
