Elliott University Center hosts multiple Red Cross Blood Drives during the school year. Drives are day-long events and are great way to serve the community. Students are encouraged to serve as a donor or as a drive volunteer.
The Drive collects whole blood and automated double blood donations. Whole blood donations typically take 45 minutes. Double blood donations typically take an hour to an hour and thirty minutes.
Be sure to come prepared when giving blood. Have a light meal and plenty to drink. Bring your Red Cross donor card (optional), driver’s license or two other forms of identification. Also, bring the names of any medications you are currently taking. NOTE: Double blood donation is only accepting blood types A-, B-, O+, and O-.
Are you looking for volunteer opportunities? Elliott University Center needs your assistance for our next Red Cross Blood Drive. We need volunteer staff to assist in loading/unloading, greeting donors, serving donors in the canteen, and processing. Please note, you may serve for more than one shift.
For more information, contact the EUC Assistant Director for Facilities & Services Kathleen McGirty.
