Blood Drive January 28th!

VA Blood Services logo

Want to lend a hand to your local community?  How about an arm instead!  Help BOO and the Virginia Blood Services with our next blood drive on Wednesday, January 28th!

The VA Blood Services will be on the Midlothian campus in Hamel hall, H109 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. taking donations.  If you would like to sign-up in advance, please stop by the registration table outside of the Midlothian library on the second floor of Hamel hall.  Walk-ins will be accepted as well.

BOO members can also help by staffing the registration table next week through the day before the drive (Tuesday, January 27).  Simply asking people to sign-up drastically increases our numbers of pre-registrations and donors.  Swing by the table whenever you have spare time to encourage folks to register to give. Remember, BOO members who volunteer five hours will receive their PTK tassel for free!

If you would like more information on donating or staffing the registration table, contact Ms. Channell or Dr. Kaplan.  You can also visit the VA Blood Services site for specific information on the donation process, http://www.vablood.org.
