Make an impact with blood, platelets in short supply

January 3, 2023  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The need for blood donations is crucial. 

To help, the American Red Cross is conducting two blood drives later this month in the Towsley Lobby.

  • Wednesday, Jan. 4: 6:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
  • Friday, Jan. 13: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.

There is also a critical need for platelet donations. Should supply remain low, the availability of platelets for patient care may be impacted. Please consider a platelet donation to the Red Cross. 

To schedule an appointment, log onto (sponsor code: goblue), call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767), or email Erin Burns at Appointments highly recommended. Please bring a photo ID.
