Please donate blood at the NCCU Blood Drive taking place in the Multi-purpose room of Bayne Hall from 12 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19th, 2018 and 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday September 20th, 2018.

Get the Red Cross Blood app to schedule your appointment, join the North Carolina Central University team, and complete the Rapid Pass to decrease wait time.  You may also schedule your appointment by visiting redcrossblood.org/make-donation using sponsor code 'NCCU' or by calling 919-530-6422.

There is a critical need for blood due to winter weather, seasonal illnesses, and the busy holiday season contributing to more than 60,000 fewer donations collected than expected. Volunteers are also needed. Volunteers must be advised that the training for the Blood Drive is mandatory. Training will take place Tuesday, September 11th, 2018 in the Baynes Hall multipurpose room during 10:40 break.

To have a successful donation, bring a photo ID, drink plenty of water, avoid tea and caffeinated drinks, and make sure you eat iron-rich foods such as lean meats, whole grains, and leafy green vegetables along with vitamin C-rich foods such as citrus fruit. Don’t wait; start now to raise those iron and hydration levels.

Come out and join the bone marrow and/or organ donor registry and get education about sickle cell disease and donating cord blood. When: September 19-20, 2018 at 12:00 PM Where: Baynes Multipurpose room Contact: Catherine Smith-Gwinn,
