ASU is trying to break its own record of 1,261 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.

Presenting donors will receive:

  • A special ASU T-shirt
  • A chance to win a $3,000 gift card
  • Great food provided by local businesses and entertainment by various groups 

Appointments are encouraged and can be made at

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!
