UMW Stafford Blood Drive

American Red Cross Spring Blood Drive

The American Red Cross will be sponsoring a blood drive at the Stafford Campus on Wednesday, March 25 from 1-5 p.m. in University Hall.

The worthy cause always needs new support, along with continuing donors. Here are some of the facts:

  • Only 37% of Americans are eligible to give blood
  • Less than 10% of eligible Americans actually do give blood
  • Someone needs blood every two seconds
  • One pint of blood can save up to three lives

If you are interested in donating, please respond to Kevin Caffrey, kcaffrey@umw.edu, with one or two preferred times that you would like to donate.  You can choose any time in increments of 15 minutes from 1-4:45 (i.e. 1:00, 1:15, 1:30, 1:45, etc.)  If you cannot donate, please feel free to spread the word about the blood drive to anyone who might be interested – students, friends, family members, coworkers—anyone at all.
