Rivals for Life: Annual Civil War Blood Drive
Between November 1-22, 2015, the American Red Cross, Lane Blood Center (part of Bloodworks Northwest), Oregon State University Alumni Association and the University of Oregon Alumni Association will take part in a 3-week campaign – throughout Oregon and in Clark County, Washington – to increase community blood donations prior to the critical holiday period.
This year marks the 14th annual of the award-winning partnership. Fans, students and alumni of both universities are encouraged to donate on behalf of their team at any American Red Cross, Lane Blood Center or Bloodworks Northwest blood drive in Oregon. The university with the most submitted ballots will be announced at the Civil War game in Eugene, Oregon.
This friendly competition between both state universities brings fans and alumni throughout Oregon to local blood drives and helps raise the awareness of the constant need for blood across our region. Whether you bleed green or orange – it’s a great opportunity to share the extraordinary gift of life. More information is available at www.civilwarblooddrive.com
Donors can give at any Lane Blood mobile drive or at our center, 2211 Willamette Street, in Eugene. Call 541-484-9111 to make an appointment. Or look for us outside the University of Oregon’s Gerlinger Annex and Lillis Business Complex during the week of November 16-20.
Use the hashtag #civilwarselfie all month long to let others know you’re saving lives and helping the Ducks take home the trophy.
