Summer Blood Drive

Stetson University will be hosting its Summer Blood Drive through Florida’s Blood Centers on Thursday, June 27, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  The bloodmobile will be parked behind the Stetson Green (between the Library and Conrad Hall).  Special incentives for donating blood this month include a free OneBlood t-shirt, free pizza from Papa Johns, a free $5 voucher to Outback Steakhouse, a free 35% off voucher to Papa Johns DeLand, a free 7-day LA Fitness sports pass, a free mini physical with cholesterol screening. In addition all eligible ALYX donors will receive a free $10 Darden gift card (by mail). (ALYX is a donation process in which double the amount of red blood cells is collected compared to a regular whole blood donation.) Remember that you will need a photo ID to donate blood.

All blood donated through the Florida’s Blood Centers remains in our area and is used at local hospitals.  Your friends, neighbors, and family depend upon our donations for blood and blood products.  Please donate and encourage your friends, colleagues, and students to donate also.  Help meet the urgent need for blood during the summer vacation season.

We would like to thank the Stetson community for our last blood drive on April 17-18, 2013, in which we saved 366 local lives.  Thank you so much for your support!  We hope to see you on June 27th.
