Human Resources to host American Red Cross blood drive

From: Human Resources

Help the Red Cross save lives by donating at the Human Resources Blood drive on Tuesday, Oct. 8, at the North End Center. 

Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. The local chapter of the American Red Cross has a great need for donations at this time.

Virginia Tech’s goal to ease this burden is to collect 30 pints of blood. In order to hold the drive, we must have at least 30 donors pledge to give blood by Sept. 30. The time of the drive has not been finalized yet. Those who pledge to donate will be advised of the time of the drive once determined.

Those interested in pledging to donate should complete this form. For more information, contact Ana Agud in Hokie Wellness at aagud@vt.edu.
