Photos: Way to Go! ASU and Red Cross Break State Record They Set Last Year; 1,315 Pints Collected


Sept. 27, 2012. The sixth annual Appalachian State University Homecoming Blood Drive happened yesterday. The American Red Cross and Appalachian State University set new records at the blood drive, collecting 1,315 pints of blood.

Last year’s blood drive set a then-state record for the highest amount of blood collected in a single day with 1,261 units. That figure was also good for the eighth most units ever collected nationally at a blood drive. Additionally, it set the 2011 record for the most units collected at a university sponsored blood drive that year. See photo gallery…
