American Red Cross, Penn State Athletics partner for blood drive Dec. 8

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The American Red Cross and Penn State Athletics will partner to host the sixth annual Bleed Blue Beaver Stadium blood drive from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 8, in the President’s Suite at Beaver Stadium.

The event is designed to help ensure blood is available this holiday season — a time of year when blood donations typically decline.

All presenting donors will receive a special Beaver Stadium blood drive T-shirt, enjoy delicious food courtesy of DelGrosso Foods, and get entered into a drawing for a chance to win four tickets to Penn State football’s game against the University of Pittsburgh on Sept. 10, 2016, at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Free parking will be available for the blood drive in the Porter North lot, and donors can enter the stadium through the suites lobby entrance off Porter Road, near Gate A.

Appointments are encouraged and can by made online at redcrossblood.org (use sponsor code PSU), by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767), or via the American Red Cross’ Blood Donor app.
