This semester’s annual blood drive is on Tuesday, October 3rd and Wednesday, October 4th from 11:45-5:45 in Beckham Hall.
Anyone can either schedule an appointment online at the Red Cross website (with the code wesleyanu) or you can email Lauren Conte at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are appointments scheduled every half hour from 11:45-5:15.
They are looking for ~50 volunteers for the blood drive. Those who cannot donate for whatever reason are encouraged to help out! The job is pretty simple– for a 30 minutes, volunteers will either be helping out at the snack table (making sure snacks are out and that donors stay for 10-15 to eat something after their donation) or manning registration (checking ids and signing donors in). Volunteers can sign up on this google sheet: https://docs.google.com/a/wesleyan.edu/spreadsheets/d/1AYBV9p15Q88HQYKX-90PGYCUm3EfBMG3Kx2i4JBJqis/edit?usp=sharing
With all the tragedies and natural disasters that have been occurring everyday in the US, blood donations are constantly in need to save lives.
