Blood Drive – Blood Battle

We have our second blood drive with UGA Red Cross this upcoming Wednesday, October 18th 11:30-4:30 at the Tate Reception Hall! This blood drive, specifically, is our blood battle against UF, so we want to try to get as many people to donate blood as possible to beat them! So, tell your friends to donate if they can too.

***If you donated last time, you CANNOT donate again because you have to wait 56 DAYS before donating blood again!!***
