Cougar Health Awareness Team plans blood drives

PULLMAN–The Cougar Health Awareness Team will host American Red Cross Blood Drives on the Washington State University Pullman campus Nov. 15, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in The Bookie and Nov. 29, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the second floor atrium of the Smith Center for Undergraduate Education.

In the United States, a blood transfusion is needed about every two seconds. By spending about an hour a donor can make a real difference in the lives of patients in the area.

“By giving now you can help save a life and help ensure an adequate community blood supply this holiday season,” said Rachel Davis, one of the organizers of the Cougar Health Awareness Team. “Give a patient in need a reason to be truly thankful. Together, we can save a life.”

Blood donors must be in good general health, weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years of age. A photo ID is required at the time of donation. To schedule a blood donation, call Davis at (509) 335-6035.
