AAUP-KSU Sponsoring Blood Drive

The United States is currently experiencing a shortage in the blood supply. Roughly 37,000 fewer donors than usual gave to the American Red Cross during November and December. Along with the hectic holiday season, severe weather hampered donations and forced blood drives to be canceled.

AAUP-KSU is sponsoring an American Red Cross blood drive on Wednesday March 1, from 9:00am to 7:00pm in the Kent campus Student Center. As sponsors, our main role is to spread the word and get people to participate. Students, faculty and staff are all welcome. Later in the week you’ll be receiving a hard copy flyer for the event, and a pdf is attached to this message. Please post and encourage your students to participate.

Volunteers from AAUP-KSU, AFSCME and student organizations will be manning the registration table and we will have AAUP-KSU “swag” available. All who sign up to donate will be entered in a raffle for an Apple iPad.

Hope to see you there!
