Nov. 15: Holiday Heroes Blood Drive at Little Bob

Blood Bank of Delmarva and UD Campus Wellbeing Collaborative sponsor the collection

During the school year, blood drives at colleges and high schools account for 20 percent of the blood collected by Blood Bank of Delmarva, and that includes a few, critical stops each year at the University of Delaware.

The Blood Bank of Delmarva and UD’s Campus Wellbeing Collaborative will hold the UD Holiday Heroes Blood Drive on from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on  Wednesday, Nov. 15 at the Bob Carpenter Sports Building (little Bob).

In 2016, the Blood Bank of Delmarva distributed 112,500 blood products to 19 different hospitals on the Delmarva Peninsula.

BBD’s partnership with UD helps to fulfill current blood supply needs and cultivates donor relationships with the younger adults. The average age of blood donors has increased dramatically over the past 20 years, with less than seven percent of all Blood Bank members being under the age of 35.

To make an appointment online please visit https://donate.bbd.org/ but walk ups are allowed. Use sponsor code UDCS.
