People giving blood

Blood drive

The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive on campus Monday, Feb. 13, and Tuesday, Feb. 14, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Thwing Center ballroom.

Approximately 900 pints of blood are needed daily to meet the need of Northeast Ohio hospitals and medical institutions; each pint of blood can save up to three lives.

Donors are encouraged to make an appointment online, but walk-ins also are welcome.

Donors can save lives in less time by taking advantage of the RapidPass system to complete their health history online before they donate. Those planning to use the RapidPass system must complete it on the day of donation; this process does not replace making an appointment.

Phi Mu and Sigma Chi will sponsor the blood drive.
