UNM-Gallup Blood Drive

UNM-Gallup MLT Program is sponsoring a "Life Saving Event" on Wednesday, April 25th, 2018 (9:00AM to 2:00PM) at Gurley Hall Commons. Please help our community by donating blood or recruiting donors. There is always a need for blood and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and every pint of blood you donate can save up to 3 lives!

Please see blood donor qualifications to see if you are eligible. Donors who are 16 or 17 years of age will need a Minor Donor PermitFor more information, please visit http://www.unitedbloodservices.org/ 

Reminder to donors:
  • please bring a valid picture ID, eat a good meal and drink plenty of water. 
  • To avoid long lines, please make an appointment here:  https://www.bloodhero.com Walk-ins are welcome. But we strongly recommend that you make an appointment.
Successful donors will receive a light refreshment, a t-shirt, and Hero Rewards from United Blood Services. 

Our community needs your help. If you are not able to donate, you can still help by spreading the word and recruiting potential donors. Please help us share this information to everyone in the community. Thank you.

Find the hero in you. Give blood, save lives!
