The Elliott University Center will host its second Red Cross Blood Drive of the 2016-2017 academic year on Wednesday, November 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Cone Ballroom.
As a result of Hurricane Matthew, 110 blood drives were cancelled resulting in a loss of 3,500 blood and platelet donations.
Schedule your donation appointment today and help the EUC reach its 300-pint goal. For those wishing to donate double red blood cells, the Red Cross is currently accepting only blood types A negative; B negative; O positive; and O negative.
Be sure to come prepared when giving blood. Have a light meal and plenty to drink. Bring your Red Cross donor card (optional), driver’s license or two other forms of identification. And bring the names of any medications you are currently taking.
