University of Missouri and American Red Cross announce satellite drives for 21st annual spring blood drive
The University of Missouri and the American Red Cross will soon team up for their 21st annual spring blood drive: “Give Blood, the Perfect Gift.”
Potential donors unable to make it to the drive April 7-8 on the MU campus can still take part in the annual tradition by donating at one of several satellite drives, which will be held March 29 through April 18.
Potential donors should be in good health the day of donating, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old (16 with a signed American Red Cross parental consent form). Federal regulations require whole blood donors to wait 56 days between donations. To schedule a blood donation appointment, please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org.
