ISU Blood Drive at the BBC

Date:
Friday, September 29th
Time:
11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Event Description

The American Red Cross needs your help!  We have a blood drive scheduled this Friday at the ISU Bowling and Billiards Activity Center from 11am-4pm and we are in need of additional donors!  We have a collect target set at 71 pints and we must achieve that target in order to have the needed blood and blood products for our hospital customers!!  We currently only have 20 donors signed up and need 98 donors signed up in order to achieve our collection target!

“Also due to the recent hurricanes it has forced the cancellation of nearly 100 American Red Cross blood drives in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, resulting in more than 2,700 uncollected blood donations.”   The Red Cross as a whole will see a significant loss of blood and blood products due to cancellations of many scheduled blood drives!! This will affect the available blood and blood products for our hospital customers and hospital patients!!! Blood needs to be available at all times no matter where you live! You can help by donating now! Your blood donation can help now more than ever!! Remember one unit of blood can help save up to three lives!! The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.

This blood drive is sponsored by the Redbird Red Cross and Alpha Kappa Psi.
