Blood drive

The American Red Cross is hosting a blood drive sponsored by Mortar Board. All donors will receive a free T-shirt (and $10 gift card by email) while supplies last. 

The Red Cross is testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. This could indicate a previous exposure to the virus or antibodies built up from receiving a vaccination. If results are positive, then your donation could be used as a convalescent plasma product to help treat hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Results are shared within 1-2 weeks.

Donors are encouraged to schedule appointments.
