The UMD Pre-Veterinary Society is sponsoring a Blood Drive through the American Red Cross! The blood drive will be held this Monday, October 29th, in the Stamp Student Union in the Atrium. The drive will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Walk-ins are certainly welcome, however, it is beneficial to schedule an appointment on the redcrossblood.org website if possible. When doing so, you simply set up a password and then you are given a fully private account that will record each time you donate, what your blood type is, when you are eligible in the future, etc. Furthermore, you will receive an email the day before each time you sign up to donate, which describes how to prepare to donate, what to eat, and any other pertinent information.
Either way, please come and donate if you are eligible. It's for a great cause, there's no better gift you can give, and after you donate, you get juice, cookies and a t-shirt! Hope to see you there!
