App State is one of a few organizations in the entire country that collects the most pints of blood in a single day at a single site!  

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood.  Blood is needed for emergencies and for people who have cancer, blood disorders, sickle cell anemia, and other illnesses. Some people need regular blood transfusions to live. While over 50% of the population is able to donate, less than 5% of the eligible population actually does.  Currently, blood donors are the only source of blood for those in need; there is simply no substitute for blood. 
 

In Fall 2019:

  • Each person signs up for a timeslot (donating blood or volunteering) using the links above and must confirm registration via email within one hour.
  • Each person MUST SIGN OUT at the blood drive after their volunteer shift or donation experience so credit goes to their club/organization for participating in a Homecoming event.
  • For individual group/organization members to actively participate, each member must register individually to donate blood or volunteer at the Blood Drive.
