American Red Cross Blood Drive on Campus Thursday, June 21
Syracuse University will host a blood drive for the American Red Cross Thursday, June 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Schine Student Center, Room 304ABC.
The summer months are among the most challenging times of the year for blood donations because regular donors delay giving while they vacation and participate in warm-weather activities. In addition, blood donations at high school and college blood drives account for as much as 20 percent of donations during the school year. Donations from those who usually give at these drives drop by more than 80 percent when school is out for the summer.
Donations are urgently needed to help ensure that blood types O, A and B are on the shelves for patients in need. If eligible, please schedule your time to donate. Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome.
To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org and enter: GIVEBLOOD@SU to schedule an appointment.
