Wes Blood Drives – First Drive of the Year

Jackie Freed ’15 is a vampire:

Did you know: One pint of blood can save up to three lives? Every two seconds, someone in the US needs a blood transfusion? The Red Cross supplies approx. 40% of the nation’s blood supply?

This is where you come in! The first blood drive of the year is this week on Wednesday and Thursday from 12:00-4:45 in Beckham Hall. Sign up for an appointment in Usdan on Monday and Tuesday or go to www.redcrossblood.org and find the drive using sponsor code WesleyanU to make your own appointment. Walk-ins will be welcomed but the wait time is much shorter with an appointment.

Third Blood Drive of the Year

Missed the first two opportunities to give blood this year? Jennifer Paykin ’12 writes:

Wesleyan will host our third blood drive of the year this Monday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 10. To sign up for an appointment, go to
the Red Cross website and search for the sponsor code WesleyanU. From there you can select the day on which you want to
donate, sign into or create a new account, and pick a time slot. Appointments must be made 24 hours in advance though we also accept walk-ins on the day of the drive.

Before you donate make sure you drink lots of water and eat iron-rich foods, and bring a photo ID. If you have any questions or are
