ASU is trying to break its own record of 1,313 pints of blood, which the school collected last year.  In addition, the Mountaineers hold the record for the largest single day blood drive in North Carolina and are ranked in the top ten nationally.

Join the ASU Mountaineers by helping save and improve the lives of individuals in need of blood.  Accident victims as well as patients with cancer, sickle cell disease, blood disorders and other illnesses receive lifesaving transfusions every day.  There is no substitute for blood and volunteer donors are the only source.

Thank you for considering giving the gift of life!
