Help Win Blood Battle Challenge By Donating at Upcoming Campus Blood Drives
Syracuse University is in the midst of a Blood Battle Challenge with Boston College, recruiting donors who will provide much-needed blood to the American Red Cross. This is the sixth year that the two institutions have paired up in the friendly rivalry. The one with the highest number of blood donations in the month of April will win the “battle” and a trophy.
This year’s theme is “The Drive for 500,” in reference to the goal of donating 500 pints of blood, which could help save up to 1,500 lives.
All donors receive a free special edition t-shirt, while supplies last.
Three campus blood drives are coming up:
Thursday, April 20, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Room 304 ABC in the Schine Student Center
Monday, April 24, from 9:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Noble Room in Hendricks Chapel
Saturday, April 29, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Room 304 ABC in the Schine Student Center
Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to schedule an appointment to donate blood by visiting the Red Cross website, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1.800.733.2767) or using the Blood Donor App with the sponsor code “giveblood@su.” Walk-ins are also welcome. Important note: a blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in.
