The drive will be in the Seminar Room of the main technology center building.

The blood drive is open to the public. Donors will receive a t-shirt and health screening.

All donors are encouraged to eat a good meal and drink extra fluids before and after donating. It is helpful to avoid drinking tea 48 hours prior to giving blood. A photo ID is required for all donors.
