In honor of National Donor Day, which is observed on Feb. 14, LIU Post will host a Holiday Blood Drive in The End Zone of Hillwood Commons on Dec. 3, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. In order to be eligible to donate, donors must have a valid ID, weigh a minimum of 110 lbs., be between 16 and 76 years of age, and cannot have gotten a tattoo within the past 12 months.
“With approximately 20 percent of blood donations coming from high schools and colleges, your involvement is critical to the success of this blood drive,” said Theresa Duggan, director of Conference Services at LIU Post. “We thank you for your support.”
The drive is sponsored by Long Island Blood Services, the same company that sponsored the LIU Post Blood Drive that took place earlier in the semester on Oct. 21 and 22. For medical questions concerning blood donations, students may call 1 (800)- 688-0900. To assist in volunteering for the event, students may contact Campus Life Coordinator Arianna Livreri through her email address Arianna.Livreri@liu.edu.
