Staff Council is celebrating the CU vs CSU Showdown with Vitalant by holding a blood drive September 12—14.

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.  Vitalant has recently updated their donor eligibility.

Be the Match will also be on site for those unable/ineligible to donate blood, 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.  

Appointment sign-ups, date specific

All donors are encouraged to make an appointment using the links below, and must be feeling well and healthy at the time of donation.

You can also donate at several other Vitalant locations; just make sure to use the code “0248” when making an appointment on the Vitalant website so your donation is attributed to CU.

Staff Council is committed to inclusivity and understands that some may not be eligible to donate. We invite all to be involved in other ways. For more information about volunteering at our events, including but not limited to blood drives, please contact Staff Council.
