Event Location: Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center atrium, first floor

Every two seconds, someone needs blood, platelets, or plasma to survive. These patients depend on blood donors to roll up their sleeves and give the gift of life.

The WVU School of Pharmacy and American Pharmacists Association are sponsoring a blood drive March 8 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center atrium, first floor.

Appointments are recommended for the blood drive. To make an appointment, visit centralbloodbank.org, click “Make an Appointment,” and search with group code W4310008. You can also download the Central Blood Bank mobile app for your smartphone or call Rachel at 412-209-7241.
