Staff Council is once again partnering with Vitalant to hold a blood drive February 7 — 9th. Participants of the blood drive will receive two free tickets to the CU Women’s Basketball game against the 4th-ranked Stanford Cardinal on Thursday, February 23rd. The Buffs are having a great season and are currently ranked 24th in the nation, so this should be an exciting game!

As our national blood supply sinks to its lowest level in a year, we encourage all who are eligible to commit to donating. For less than an hour of your time, your blood donation can save up to 3 lives. 

Be the Match will also be on site for those unable/ineligible to donate, or who wish to double their impact. Learn about how to be added to the bone marrow registry and how important it is to expand the registry as wide as possible. 

Finally, while you wait, Staff Council will also have a table set up for participants to create Valentine’s Day cards to be distributed to Meals on Wheels recipients. 
All donors are encouraged to make an appointment using the links below, and must be feeling well and healthy at the time of donation.
