Blood drive sponsored by the College of Nursing's Undergraduate Nursing Senate 9/13

Recycle yourself! Give blood on Tuesday, September 13th in St. Mary’s Gym during the Undergraduate Nursing Senate (UNS) Blood Drive from 11am to 5pm. Appointments preferred via www.redcrossblood.org, enter sponsor #2031.

For over 25 years, UNS has been sponsoring blood drives 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 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—among them premature infants, babies having open heart surgery, people with hemophilia, and trauma, cancer and burn patients.

You can help three people and give hope to their families and friends by being there September 13th!
