Donations urgently needed at Homewood blood
The Red Cross has issued an urgent appeal for
donations of types O and B blood, with all other
types at critical levels. Since undergraduate students
constitute up to 80 percent of the donors at
Homewood campus drives and most are away for the summer,
faculty and staff are urged to donate
between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 9, in the
Glass Pavilion. Lines are expected to be
shorter than during the academic year.
To schedule an appointment, go to:
www.jhu.edu/outreach/blooddrive e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call
410-516-0138. To check eligibility criteria and prepare for
donation, go to:
A safe, desired blood supply is five to seven days'
worth of any given blood type, in order to
meet local patient need and maintain an adequate reserve in
the event of an emergency. Blood donated
at the Homewood drive goes to the Greater Chesapeake and
Potomac Blood Services Region of the
American Red Cross, which supplies blood to Central
Maryland, including Baltimore; Washington, D.C.;
Northern Virginia; and South Central Pennsylvania.
Ride on Baltimore-Annapolis trail to raise sarcoma
Members of the Kimmel Cancer Center's Team Sarcoma are
ready to ride — whether on bikes, in-line skates,

they're looking for more colleagues to join in.
The event, scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday,
July 12 (rain date: July 19), will take place
on the Baltimore-Annapolis trail, located on the scenic
north shore of the Severn River.
Participation is free, but registration is re-quired.
