Blood Drive Success!

The blood drive continues to be a huge success! According to Doc Koslow, the director of the drive, as of 5PM Sunday, 1,000 people have participated and donated 750 units. The drive expects to collect a total of 1,000 units by the close of Dragon*Con. This will break the record held by Comic-Con of 856 units. Almost all of the blood will be sent to aid the victims of Hurricane Gustov. Our thoughts go out to the eight con participants who had to return home today for the evacuation. Monday is the last day that blood can be taken.

The hours on Monday are from 9AM to 4PM. Please donate to this worthy cause. M202 & L405 (M)
