Alumni Donation Challenge

App Alumni: We are living in uncertain times & might be unsure of how we could possibly make a difference.

We here in ACT know that “even small acts of kindness can make a profound difference to somebody else” (Misha Collins)...

The 11th Annual Homecoming Blood Drive is coming up on Wednesday Sept 20th from 8am-7pm at the Holmes Convocation Center, so we thought we would challenge 30 Appalachian Alumni to donate blood both in solidarity and in honor of the 30th anniversary of Appalachian & the Community Together (ACT).

Help us bring hope one pint at a time!


  • Donate blood between Sunday September 17th-Saturday September 30th

  • Then tell us about it: email by Mon Oct 1st & tell us where/when you donated!

  • Bonus points if you send us a picture of you during or after you donate

  • This challenge is open to all App alums, friends, and family!

Disclaimer: While blood donated offsite can’t be counted in Appalachian’s Homecoming Blood Drive official total, our actual goal is to positively impact as many lives as possible regardless of where you live!

And then? We will announce the total number of alumni pints the week after our drive via Facebook ( and on our website (!
