Alpha Phi Omega at Tennessee Tech is sponsoring a Blood Drive with Blood Assurance in the main quad on Wednesday, November 18, from 10 am to 4 pm. Blood supplies are currently critically low right now, so every pint donated is greatly appreciated!

You can sign up to register at http://bloodassurance.org/ttuapo/

A few facts about giving blood:

    • 4.5 million Americans will need blood during each year.

 

    • 43,000 pints of blood is used each day in the US and Canada.

 

    • 1 in 7 people entering a hospital need blood.

 

    • There are four blood types (A, B, AB and O). AB is the universal receipient. O is the universal donor.

 

    One pint of blood can save up to three lives.

Please donate blood on Wednesday!
