Blood Drives: O Where Art Thou?

Regardless of your blood type, remember—the most rare blood type—is the type that isn’t available when needed. The Penn-Jersey Region uses a real-time inventory, meaning that we collect and distribute blood continuously. We try to maintain a five-day inventory of blood. The reality is that we often have less than a day’s worth of Type O blood, which is crucial in emergency room treatment.

Please register online and give blood at one of the following upcoming blood drives:

Monday, November 6

Harnwell College House, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Harnwell House–Underground
