ASU Newport is partnering with the American Red Cross on Jan. 21 and Feb. 7 to host We Challenge U blood drives.

All presenting donors will receive a commemorative T-shirt recognizing their efforts, while supplies last. Please see the news release below which shares more information on this program. A PSA script for broadcast can also be found by clicking here. Winter can be a challenging season to collect enough blood to maintain sufficient supplies for patients. Inclement weather and seasonal illnesses often contribute to lower donations. However, the need for blood is constant. Blood donations are needed year-round for accident and burn victims, heart surgery patients, organ transplant patients and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease.
