Donors respond to MTSU True Blue Blood Drive

MTSU is clearly proud to bleed “True Blue,” as dozens of donors rolled up their sleeves for the first day of the university’s three-day True Blue Blood Drive on Monday, Oct. 21.

True Blue supporters across the Midstate can still make an appointment now at to donate through Oct. 23 at MTSU’s Student Health, Wellness and Recreation Center. Appointments are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, and Wednesday, Oct. 23.

The blood drive, now in its fourth year, has traditionally been a competition between MTSU and former Sun Belt Conference rival Western Kentucky University linked to their annual football matchup.

The Blue Raiders aren’t facing the Hilltoppers this fall because of MTSU’s switch to Conference USA, but MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee said the need for blood remains urgent.
