A belated Valentine's Day gift

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, have a heart and offer three people you don't know a gift they desparately need. Participate in the Feb. 16th blood drive sponsored by the College of Nursing's Undergraduate Nursing Senate!

Tuesday, February 16th

11am to 5pm
Dougherty Hall-West Lounge
Appointments preferred (sign up at
www.pleasegiveblood.org/donate and enter sponsor #2031)

For 25 years, the Undergraduate Nursing Senate has been sponsoring blood drives on campus with the American Red Cross. That's a lot of lives saved by the Villanova community.

What happens to your blood? Blood may be used for whole blood transfusions or it is separated into its components including red blood cells, plasma, platelets, and cryoprecipitated AHF (antihemophilic factor). Each component can be transfused to different individuals with different needs. Therefore, each donation can be used to help save as many as three lives.

Who are you helping? Premature infants in NICUs, babies having open heart surgery, people with hemophilia, and trauma, cancer and burn patients among countless others.

You can help three people and give hope to their families and friends by being there February 16th!
