Red Cross blood drive April 17

The Elliott University Center will host its fourth Red Cross Blood Drive of the 2011-2012 school year on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Cone Ballroom, EUC. Schedule your donation appointment today and help the EUC reach its 400-pint goal. For those wishing to donate double red blood cells, the Red Cross is currently accepting only blood types A negative; B negative; O positive; and O negative.

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. And bring the names of any medications you are currently taking.

The drive is linking with Trees for the Future. A tree will be planted for every 10 blood donors for the entire month of April – the goal is to have 2,500 trees planted in honor of Carolinas Region blood donors.

A free T-shirt will be handed out to all that are present to donate.

For more information on giving blood, and to schedule your donation appointment, visit www.uncg.edu/euc/blooddrive. Appointments will be given priority. Walk-ins are welcome.
