The “True Blue Blood Drive” will be held Nov. 1-3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, at the Campus Recreation Center, 1848 Blue Raider Drive. Nearly 665 gallons donated by MTSU supporters — and about 15,954 lives saved — since the big fall three-day American Red Cross event began in 2010.
Donors can make an appointment Nov. 1-3 by visiting the Red Cross website or going to http://redcrossblood.org and typing “MTSU” in the red “Find a Blood Drive” box. Appointments also are easy to schedule with the Red Cross Blood Donor app or by texting “BLOODAPP” to 90999. Walk-in donors also will be welcome. Learn more here.
