Holiday Carolina Blood Drive

December 12, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 1:00 pm

The UNC Employee Forum and the American Red Cross will host the 19th annual Holiday Carolina Blood Drive in Fetzer Hall (with free parking in the Cobb Deck).

Giving blood is easy – it only takes about an hour and saving a life is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. The Red Cross is making the donation process even smoother this year; walk-ups will have a designated blood donation pod, and all blood and platelet donors can use Rapid Pass to save time while giving blood. (Learn more or complete a RapidPass at redcrossblood.org/RapidPass.)

Speak with a Red Cross representative to schedule an appointment by calling 1-800-RED CROSS. Sign up online at redcrossblood.org with the sponsor code UNC or use the Red Cross Blood Donor App.

Free parking will be available in Cobb Deck off Country Club Road, and all presenting donors will receive a free, customized Holiday Carolina Blood Drive Red Cross T-shirt.

Students, consider taking a study break to donate blood – snacks will be provided. For UNC employees, time spent donating and volunteering is considered work time (with permission from a supervisor).

Just one donation can help save three lives. Please join the Employee Forum and give blood at the Holiday Carolina Blood Drive!
