KU Blood Drive

Future blood drives in Kansas City and Wichita

On May 9, the Greater Kansas City Chapter and the KU Cancer Center have teamed up for a different type of blood drive: one that benefits the Biospecimen Bank. Blood donations at this drive will be used to study how genes, lifestyles and our environment lead to cancer.

On June 11, the Wichita Chapter will sponsor a traditional blood drive. If you’re in the Wichita area, watch your email for more information.

Jayhawks help save lives by donating blood

Posted on Jul 1, 2013 in Campus News and News

On Thursday, June 27th the Student Alumni Association hosted a blood drive inside the Adams Alumni Center.

KU Blood Drive | www.kualumni.orgJayhawks of all ages came out to support the event and donate life-saving blood. Overall, thirty six donors contributed a total of twenty five pints of blood for the Community Blood Center.

Event staffers commended the KU community for their outstanding support of the event. “While we are surprised that none of the donors actually have blue blood, we always look forward to visiting the KU campus” commented one technician.

The event was originally slated to be held in front of the Adams Alumni Center in the Community Blood Center’s mobile van. Unfortunately, the van broke down, and the only available room in the building was the Seymour Pub.

While the idea of a “pint for a pint” may have enticed some donors, the pub was not open for pints of the tall, frosty kind.

If you are interested in future blood donation opportunities, please visit savealifenow.org for the calendar of upcoming events, and look forward to another campus blood drive in September!
