The American Red Cross and the University of Missouri will once again team up for the annual Spring Greek Week Blood Drive April 9-11 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at MizouRec, 213 Rothwell Gymnasium, in Columbia.
The Red Cross invites students, staff, faculty and the residents of Columbia to rally around a lifesaving cause. Whether you are on or off campus, there’s no better way to celebrate the giving nature of the community than by helping the Red Cross maintain a sufficient blood supply.
Simply download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org and enter sponsor code Mizzou or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
Blood donors can save time at their next donation by using RapidPass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, from a computer or mobile device. To get started and learn more, visit RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass and follow the instructions on the site.
