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 Division of Occupational Therapy is sponsoring a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16.

The events support Central Blood Bank, J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital’s supplier for blood products.

Appointments are recommended for the blood drives. To make an appointment, visit centralbloodbank.org, click “Make an Appointment,” and search with group code W4310006. You can also download the Central Blood Bank mobile app for your smartphone or call Rachel at 412-736-5506.
