Blood Battle against Ohio State now underway
This year’s Blood Battle against Ohio State is underway and will run until Nov. 24.
Whether you have never donated blood before or donate every year, your help is needed! Consider donating for Blood Battle to be a part of the fight to save lives across the state and country.
To make an appointment to donate, visit bloodbattle.org and click “Donate” on the homepage or visit the American Red Cross’s website, www.redcrossblood.org, and insert the sponsor code “goblue.”
Due to COVID-19, appointments are highly recommended and walk-ins will only be permitted as space permits. All presenting donors will receive a Blood Battle t-shirt and coupon for Washtenaw Dairy while supplies last. Donors will also be entered into a raffle for gift cards to local businesses and other great prizes!
For your convenience, the dates, times and locations of this year’s drives are listed below. The American Red Cross asks donors to use Rapid Pass, which allows donors to complete their donation quicker by completing some steps before arriving at the blood drive. Visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass for more information.
Donating blood is an essential activity — there is no replacement for human blood, and your support is more important now than ever. This is supported by the Michigan Governor’s office, Michigan State Police, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Department of Health and Human Services. Please bring your proof of blood donation appointment and your completed rapid pass to the blood drive.
All drives on campus in U-M buildings will require both volunteers and donors to wear masks and complete the ResponsiBlue screening in compliance with university policies. Donors who cannot comply with these regulations will be turned away at the door.
Please eat iron-rich foods and drink plenty of water before you donate blood so that you are healthy on the day of your donation.
