Hoxworth Blood Center needs Bearcats to roll up a sleeve during all-campus blood drive

All donors will receive free Girl Scout cookies during all-campus blood drive

Hoxworth Blood Center is calling for the UC community to roll up a sleeve and save a life.

Hoxworth Blood Center is asking for University of Cincinnati students, faculty and staff to come together to replenish low blood supplies during the all-campus blood drive scheduled through April 19. All donors will receive a complimentary box of Girl Scout cookies as a thank you. Additionally students can earn two Community Service Hours for their whole blood donation and four hours for their platelet donation.

“We typically see a dip in blood donations during the winter months due to weather and illness,” says Alecia Lipton, Hoxworth spokesperson. “This year we are hoping that the UC community will come out and help us save lives during the all-campus blood drive in exchange for delicious Girl Scout cookies.”

Hoxworth will be on all UC campuses on the following remaining dates:

Wednesday, April 17

Main Campus: Tangeman University Center from 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
