UCARE Blood Drive

Help Ursinus combat the nationwide blood shortage!

This time of the year there is typically a huge, nationwide blood supply deficit. This winter is no different.  College students make up approximately 1/3 of the entire blood supply, so when there is no school, the blood supply plummets. In order to help combat the shortage, UCARE will be holding its annual Blood Drive after break on Tuesday the 24th, from 10 am to 3 pm in the Bear’s Den. Standard donations take a little over 30 minutes while donations such as Power Red (twice the red blood cell count) take a bit longer. Every pint of blood can save up to three lives! Furthermore, all donors will receive coupons for free coffee and donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts. If you’d like to donate and schedule a time to give blood, sign up with UCARE in Lower or online at: http://www.redcrossblood.org/give/drive/driveSearchList.jsp?zipSponsor=ursinus. Be on the lookout for UCARE Fellows tabling the week before!
