The All-Campus Fall Blood Drive was the first record-breaking drive for the University, with 1,513 registered donors.
“The recent inclement weather has negatively impacted blood collection,” states Ronald Sacher, director of Hoxworth Blood Center. “The record-breaking success at the University of Cincinnati ensured that we had enough blood products for patients in our area hospitals. We are very grateful for the generosity of the students, faculty, staff and President Santa Ono for their participation and support of our mission to save lives through blood donation.”
Mark your calendar for the next all-campus blood drive to be held April 7-11 on the UC campus.
The blood drive is co-sponsored by the University of Cincinnati Bookstore. For more information and news about upcoming blood drives, go to http://hoxworth.org/groups/uc.
