April Blood Drive


Contributed by Cynthia Smith

Thanks to all our blood donors in February, we were able to collect 141 units of blood, which had the potential to save 423 lives. Great job!

Once again we are asking for your help with the blood drive on April 12 in the Emerson Suites from 8:30 a.m to 3:30 p.m. Please help us hit our goal of 130 units. Even better, help us to surpass it. Lets show that we are a community that cares and will roll up their sleeves for the good of the community.

Some food for thought:

You are eligible to donate if you meet the following criteria: If you have an hour to spare and can be a local hero, please email smaxwell@ithaca.edu or call 274-7342 to schedule an appointment.

Remember that positive ID is required and be sure to eat well the day of donation, drink plenty of fluids, and get a good night's sleep.
