Red Cross Blood Drive

Last Thursday 39 employees from SUNY System Administration, the Research Foundation and the Construction Fund donated blood during the first Red Cross Blood drive hosted in the courtrooms since their construction ended. Based on previous drives, our goal was to collect 27 units. We reached 137% of our goal with 37 units collected and 9 new donors, potentially saving up to 111 lives. Thank you for your support. The Next Blood Drive is scheduled for August 15th. Donors may give blood as often as every 8 weeks. If you have any questions please contact Elise Newkirk-Kotfila or Tim Orcutt (tim.orcutt@rfsuny.org)
