Red Cross Calls for Blood Donations to Offset Holiday
The Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Blood Services
Region of the American Red Cross is reporting unusually low
blood donation appointments recently due to poor weather,
spring breaks at some colleges and family holiday
activities. The GC&P Region is urging all eligible donors
to give blood at the university's Homewood blood drive on
Tuesday, April 13, and Wednesday, April 14, from 8 a.m. to
6:30 p.m. in Levering Hall's Glass Pavilion.
Walk-in donors are welcome, but having scheduled
appointments allows the Red Cross to allocate adequate
staff to make the drives run smoothly. To make an
appointment or to volunteer at the drive, go to
www.jhu.edu/outreach/blooddrive or call 410-516-0138.
Potential donors should check current eligibility
guidelines, including those related to travel, before
signing up for an appointment. Guidelines can be found on
the Web site, and specific questions can be answered by
American Red Cross staff at 800-GIVE-LIFE.
