The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the American Red Cross are teaming up once again at the 31st annual Carolina Blood Drive. This year’s drive will be held on June 4 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Smith Center.
Sponsored by the Employee Forum, the blood drive supports the Red Cross in its lifesaving mission to make blood available for those in need. UNC-Chapel Hill students, faculty and community members who give will ensure hospital patients can continue to receive treatment during the holidays when donations often decline.
Since 1989, the blood drives at Carolina have collected 33,367 pints of blood. Because each blood donation has the capacity to help save three lives, Carolina Blood Drives have potentially impacted more than 100,000 lives.
Make your appointment to be part of the Carolina Blood Drive; download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Walk-ins will be accepted the day of the drive, but appointments are encouraged.
