VSU Organizations Sponsor Blood Drive

VALDOSTA – Five Valdosta State University student organizations will team-up to sponsor an American Red Cross blood drive held 12:30-5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 22 in the Student Union Ballroom.

The sponsoring student organizations are Alpha Delta Pi (ADPi), Alpha Phi Omega (APO), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Pi Kappa Phi  (PKP) and Distinguished Women of Excellence.

“Nearly 20 percent of all donations come from high school and college students, so we encourage VSU students to donate at drives on campus,” said Claire Bowen, donor recruitment representative for the American Red Cross.

Every participating donor will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a $50 gift card.

Anyone interested can schedule an appointment online at redcrossblood.org, then go to “Find a blood drive near you” and use sponsor code: vsu and date: April 22, 2014.
