American Red Cross Blood Drive

Washington and Lee University will host a Red Cross Blood Drive on Nov. 30 in Evans Hall from 10 a.m.– 4 p.m.

In addition to signing up to donate blood, there are multiple ways to get involved the day of the drive. Volunteers have the opportunity to help with tabling in Elrod Commons or with registration in Evans Hall.

Donation times are up to the donor’s preference, however only four spots are available per time slot. Participants can further expedite the donor check-in process by visiting redcrossblood.org/RapidPass.

The Red Cross encourages all blood donors to hydrate properly before a donation, wear something comfortable the day you give blood and maintain a healthy level of iron in your diet.

Donor’s also have the option of making a double red blood cell donation the day of the drive but are not required to do so.

The American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization led by volunteers and guided by its congressional charter and the fundamental principal of the International Red Cross Movement.
