Second Annual Civil War Blood Drive

The American Red Cross and Lane Memorial Blood Bank are partnering once again with the alumni of Oregon State University and University of Oregon to improve community blood supplies with the second annual Civil War Blood Drive Rally.

The two-week event will run from November 3 to November 17.

Alumni, students, parents, faculty and friends of both the U of O and OSU are invited to schedule an appointment to donate blood between November 4 and 20 at any local blood drive statewide. Donors will be able to sign "Civil War Blood Drive Honor Rolls" on behalf of their favored team and a final tally of donations by will be made and the winning university will be honored during the annual Civil War Football game on November 22 in Eugene.

Last year the Beavs brought in 2,720 pints of blood during the first annual Civil War Blood Drive - more than the UO - and helped potentially save 8,160 lives. This year's collective goal with the UO is to bring in 7,000 pints which will help ensure a stable supply of blood in our region for the holiday season. We need your help to meet our goal!

Call 1-800 GIVE LIFE to schedule your donation at a public drive or fixed site near you. Be sure to vote for the Beavs on the donor honor roll that will be located in the cantina!

This year all donors will receive a lapel pin for donataing at any site during the Nov. 3-17 competition!
