Blood Drive set for Jan. 25 at UVa-Wise

The Office of Greek Life at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise, along with fraternities and sororities, will sponsor an indoor blood drive on Tuesday, Jan. 25, from noon until 5 p.m. in the Cantrell Banquet Hall.

The event benefits MARSH Regional Blood Center, which represents several hospitals in the region.  There is an urgent need for blood in the region as supplies are critically low due to the winter weather. All donors get a free long sleeve t-shirt and are registered to win a 42-inch plasma TV, sponsored by MARSH.

Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments to donate blood are preferred. Appointments may be made by e-mailing Josh Justice at or by calling 276-376-4514.
