6th Annual Homecoming Blood Drive Sets New Record!
Our sincerest apologies for the delayed update, but we wanted to be sure the numbers were right before spreading the news. Appalachian etched its name a little deeper in history today when over 1200 donors turned out to give blood resulting in a simply unbelievable collection of
1,315 pints of blood!
Even more amazing was that the goal was achieved with minimal wait times experienced by donors. A special thanks goes out to all the patient donors over the past 6 years who have helped our dedicated friends at the American Red Cross (many of whom are App alum) and the Appalachian student team find new and better ways of providing a positive donation experience.
We hope all past Appalachian donors and volunteers share a sense of a pride and accomplishment as we celebrate this BACK TO BACK TO BACK recording setting blood drive!
If you've ever wondered how much 1 pint of blood actually helps, listen to Caroline's story.
If YOU have been impacted by blood donation (if you have been a blood recipient or have a close family member who has) and would like to SHARE your story, please contact us email@example.com.
Please listen to ASU student Andy Decker's story and consider donating blood at any drive at any time to help save lives!
