We Need Penn State’s Help Now

We NEED Penn State’s help. The Red Cross has lost 28,000 scheduled blood donations due to the recent weather since January 1st. We are currently on a National Blood Appeal. It’s critical that we RECOVER that lost blood immediately. The Penn State Red Cross Club urges all eligible donors to schedule an appointment to give blood NOW.

“We have not seen the January supply drop this dramatically in a decade and we need to reverse this now,” said John Hagins, CEO, Greater Alleghenies Region. “You don’t wait to refuel once you’ve run out of gas. Donating blood or platelets now helps ensure immediate and future patient needs will be met.”

At Penn State we are in the midst of our THON blood drive campaign, so there are blood drives going on almost every day. For every presenting donor, $4 will be donated to THON and credited to the organization of the donor’s choice. The process only takes about an hour, and each donation can save up to three lives.

If you are on campus, visit the Penn State Red Cross Club website to schedule. We need everyone to donate blood as soon as they can. Please help out, we need your help!
