April Blood Drive

Story by Kiral LePard

SAN MARCOS —   The American Red Cross (ARC) will be holding the April blood drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 29 through May 3 in Lot 6 located behind the Teaching & Learning Center.

According to the ARC, red blood cells only last about six weeks, meaning blood donations are always in demand.

Walk-ins will be welcome but the ARC recommends that students schedule an appointment ahead of time.

Students can do so by visiting, to call 1-800-Red Cross (733-2767), or use The Blood Donor App and entering sponsor code: PalomarSM.

ARC encourages that students utilize the RapidPass tool. This tool allows donors to apply for donation in less time by filling out required documents online ahead of time.

Volunteer opportunities are also available for students. For more information contact Jordan Mougier at
