A special message to:
The University of Georgia
2nd Annual UGA vs. Georgia Tech Blood Drive Challenge


The University of Georgia is asking students, alumni, staff and fans to help save lives by giving blood.  We are competing against Georgia Tech to see which school can recruit the most blood donors in this second annual blood drive challenge.

“UGA and Georgia Tech have a lot of loyal fans who don’t hesitate to support their team at various events,” said Randy Edwards, chief executive officer, American Red Cross Southern Blood Services Region.  “We hope fans will show the same enthusiasm for this blood drive challenge and help support their favorite team by donating blood.”

The University of Georgia fans can donate at Memorial Hall on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  To make an appointment, call 1-800-RED CROSS or go to redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code UGASARC.  Donors who can not make it to campus, can also donate at one of our participating blood donation centers November 12 through November 16:
