Softball Team Sponsors Blood Drive Aug. 26

VALDOSTA – Valdosta State University's softball team is sponsoring a blood drive with the American Red Cross from 12:30-5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 26, in the Student Union Ballroom.
 
“Blood donations at high school and college blood drives account for as much as 20 percent of donations during the school year,” said Claire Bowen, donor recruitment representative for the American Red Cross. “Donations from those who usually give at these drives drop by more than 80 percent when school is out for the summer. Now that school is back in session, we encourage VSU students to step up and donate blood on campus.”
 
Every participating donor will receive a T-shirt. To schedule an appointment online go to www.redcrossblood.org, then “Find a blood drive near you” and use sponsor code: vsu and date: Aug. 26, 2014.
