Blood Drive

8:00pm - 8:00pm

Chase Center

Chase Center

​There will be a blood drive from 10:30 am - 3:30 pm in the Chase Center this Thursday, June 30th.


VLS has shown its commitment to the health and safety of the community through blood drives again and again, but with so few people on campus, we need you! Summer is historically the worst time for blood donations. This summer, the Red Cross has been reduced to buying blood from other sources to meet the need. Let's turn out in force and help out. We especially need double red cell donors.


When is the best time to give?

There are lots of spots empty in the afternoon, so if your schedule is flexible, please consider giving between 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm.


How do I sign up?

Go to redcrossblood.org​ and look up the VT Law drive by zip code (05068).


What are double red cells?

A Double Red Cell donation collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor. These donors must meet specific eligibility requirements and have Type A Neg, B Neg, or O blood.


Advice before donating?

Drink lots of water and make sure your diet has plenty of protein/iron.


What if I can't donate blood?

Consider donating snacks! All baked goods should be at Chase Center by 9:30 am the day of the drive.
