Give blood at upcoming American Red Cross drive

Blood Drive flyerThe American Red Cross will hold a blood drive on campus Tuesday, Nov. 17, and Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Thwing Center ballroom.

Approximately 900 pints of blood are needed daily to meet the needs 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 are welcome.

Donors now can save lives in less time by taking advantage of the new RapidPass system to complete their health history online before they donate. RapidPass must be completed on the day of donation and does not replace making an appointment.

The Case Western Reserve University Red Cross and the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) fraternity will sponsor this blood drive.
