The Rhode Island Blood Center will hold a blood drive on campus. Why give blood? Every day patients in Rhode Island and Southern New England need blood transfusions to recover from illness and injury. R.I. Blood Center's goal is to collect about 240 pints daily to meet these patient needs. We hope you will join us by giving the gift of life - a blood donation. If you have any questions about donating blood, please contact the Blood Center at (401) 453-8307 or visit their website at www.ribc.org. If you have any questions about the blood drive, contact K.C. Ferrara at kferrara@rwu.edu.
