UMW Community Makes Blood Drives a Success

Giving blood at the Stafford campus is becoming second nature for the UMW community.

Since 2011, Kevin Caffrey, senior associate registrar, has worked with the American Red Cross to plan and host six blood drives at the Stafford campus, collecting a total of 108 pints of blood.

During the most recent drive on April 10, the Red Cross collected 18 pints.

“We had about 25 people show up to donate – including staff and faculty from Graduate Admissions, Student Accounts, the Writing Center, Facilities and Services, and the College of Business. We also had students from both the College of Education and College of Business stop by to donate, as well as members of the local community and family of staff,” said Caffrey. “Everyone needs blood and donors and supporters make all the difference.”

Stay tuned for details on the next drive.
