Joint blood drive to collect donations for troops

Photo
Cadets routinely turn out in force to donate blood at monthly blood drives held on campus.
The Citadel will host a joint blood drive with the American Red Cross and the Armed Services Blood Program on Tuesday, Sept. 25 in Mark Clark Hall. The blood drive, which is open to the public, will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The goal: 600 units of blood. Some will stay in the Charleston community, but most donations will go to active duty personnel serving overseas.

Appointments are recommended. Those with an appointment will be given priority in the donation process. To make an appointment, click here

To donate blood you must weigh at least 110 pounds, be 17 or older and be in good health. You cannot be on antibiotics on the donation date and cannot have donated blood in the last 56 days.

The American Red Cross will be set up in Buyer Auditorium and the Armed Services Blood Program will be located in the first floor lounger of Mark Clark Hall.
