Homecoming Blood Drive

Homecoming is right around the corner, which means it’s time to bleed blue and white! The Student Red Cross Club will be hosting a special Homecoming blood drive on Thursday, September 29th at the HUB in Alumni Hall from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Did you know that donors and volunteers can receive Homecoming spirit points for their organization?

○ Members of your organization, pair or triad should sign-­in to donate at the Blood Drive to receive 10 points per member (Up to 10 members).

○ If you pre­-register to donate at the blood drive, you can earn up to 12 points per    member.

○ If a member of your organization volunteers at the blood drive, you may receive 5 spirit points per 2 hour shift (Up to 5 members).

○ Organizations can earn up to 195 points by donating or volunteering at the blood drive.

As one of our Bleed Blue Blood Drives, every donor is also automatically entered to win a Penn State® Football home game package for 2016, which includes two Mt. Nittany Club tickets, pre-game hospitality passes, a sideline visit during the game, and Beaver Stadium video board recognition!

Every two seconds, someone in America needs blood. Make sure to eat a good meal 1-2 hours before donating and drink plenty of water on the day of your donation. Donors must be 16 yrs. of age or older and have a valid photo ID to donate.
