Red Cross Blood Drive

September 17, 2018

10:30am - 4pm

Campus Center Multipurpose Room

Community Service

One blood donation can save up to three lives. Castleton University is asking the members of our campus community to renew hope in those in need and donate blood. 

About every 2 seconds, someone in the United States needs blood and every donated pint can help save 3 lives. The Red Cross relies on generous donors to ensure the blood supply does not drop to dangerously low levels. By donating blood, you are helping the Red Cross in its mission of providing lifesaving to patients and hospitals.

To donate blood and platelets, individuals must be at least 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be in good, general health. Please allow at least one to 1 1/2 hours, to make it through the entire blood donation process. For more information, please visit To make a reservation, please call 1-800-RED CROSS.

PLEASE NOTE: For the first time, donors can do most of their health history before arriving at the drive, using the Red Cross’s new RapidPass. RapidPass offers donors a way to complete their pre-reading and donation questions online from the comfort and privacy of their homes or offices, reducing the time they spend at blood drives by as much as 15 minutes. It must be done the day of the donation. More information is available at
