If you knew you could save up to three lives, would you do it? Donating blood is one way to do so.

On Oct. 30, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Campus Center, the Kentucky Blood Center will be on campus, holding a blood drive. They were invited by Transy’s Campus and Community Engagement program. 

“We treasure our partnership with Kentucky Blood Center because the work they do matters,” said Tevin Monroe, Transy’s Americorps Vista community engagement support specialist.

In the U.S., less than 38 percent of the population is eligible to donate blood, and only about 10 percent of those people donate regularly.

“The need for blood donors is always high. We as a Transy community are here to meet that need,” Monroe said. 

Students, staff, faculty and the community make a donation right on campus. Donors are encouraged to make an appointment online at this link. Walk-ins will also be accepted, but priority will be given to those with an appointment.
