ASU will be hosting the semi-annual Battle of the Halls blood drive starting Monday, September 16th and running through Thursday, September 19th , from 2- 7pm all days.
Please find the Hero in You and come donate!
The schedule of drives are as follows:
Monday- Plaza Verde on the bus at the circle drive
Tuesday- Centennial Village in the Meeting Room and on the bus
Wednesday- Texan Hall in the Community Room
Thursday- Robert Massie Hall in the Main Lobby
Food will be served to donors at each drive AND donors will receive a goody bag filled with freebies, coupons from local restaurants, and a commemorative T-shirt!
Appointments can be made by contacting your Residence Hall Front Desk or RA. They are recommended, but not required.
For those of you that have never donated blood before, the process takes 45 minutes to 1 hour. It is a simple process broken down into 4 steps- 1) Interview, 2) mini-physical, 3) donation, 4) refreshments.
**You can save about 15 minutes by completing your “Health History Questionnaire” online at www.UnitedBloodServices.com before your donation. This must be done the day of the drive and you will need access to a printer**
United Blood Services has been this area’s nonprofit community blood provider since 1956, and serves patients in 10 hospitals in 11 counties, including Tom Green County, Shannon Medical Center, and Community Hospital. The United Blood Services network is one of the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit blood service organizations, and is a founding member of America’s Blood Centers and the AABB (formerly the American Association of Blood Banks).
Blood that is donated at a United Blood Services community drive, stays in the community. What an amazing gift it would be to know that your donation helped save someone in your community, possibly even someone you know!
Please help United Blood Services to achieve their mission of providing a safe and ample supply of blood for those in need, they desperately need Heroes to come the rescue. Find the Hero in You and come out to donate!!
