Opportunities to give blood on campus
Several UTC organizations are partnering with Blood Assurance, to host a series of blood drives on campus Tuesday, October 3-Friday, October 6. Donors will help save lives, they will receive a free commemorative T-shirt, and they will become eligible to win the Blood Assurance 1966 Ford Mustang, to be given away at UTC’s homecoming game on Saturday, October 7.
“Blood donations only take about 30 minutes,” said Trish Black, Blood Assurance Assistant Director of Donor Recruitment. “This is a small amount of time that people can take to save up to three people’s lives.”
One in seven people will need a blood transfusion during their lifetime. However, only five percent of the 60 percent of people that are able to give blood actually donates. Help Blood Assurance supply life-saving blood components to area hospital patients by donating blood.
