Black History Month Blood Drive
— For the second year, as part of Black
History Month, and with the assistance of
the Black Student Union, a Valentine’s Day
blood drive on the Homewood campus will
mark the contributions of Charles Drew,
the pioneering African-American physician
whose research made it possible for people
to donate and receive transfusions of blood.
The drive is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 6:15
p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14, in the Glass Pavilion.
To address the shortage of bone marrow
donors from diverse racial and ethnic
backgrounds, faculty, staff and students of
color may register as potential bone marrow
donors at the drive between 9 a.m. and 4:30
p.m. No appointment is needed to register as
a potential marrow donor.
As further incentives, romantic comedy
films will be shown in the waiting area, and
all participants will receive an official Red
Cross drawstring tote bag.
Appointments are recommended and can
be made online at
or by contacting John Black at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-516-0138. New and
returning donors are urged to check eligibility
By giving blood, or filling in for co-workers
while they donate, you help the Red Cross
replenish reserves that are sorely depleted in
the winter due to donor vacations, holidays
and inclement weather.
