Red Cross Partners with Penn State for Bleed Blue Campaign


Since 2010, The American Red Cross has partnered with Penn State in offering Bleed Blue, a campaign designed to increase awareness of the constant need for blood and the lives touched by the donations that are collected. Last year alone there were more than 100 Bleed Blue Drives, resulting in over 3,600 units and 525 first time donors.

From August through November, donors are encouraged to attend Bleed Blue Blood Drives that will be held throughout the area. All donors will be entered for a chance to win a pair of tickets to a Penn State home game, which includes special club seating and on-field recognition during the game as a Red Cross Bleed Blue Donor!

The Red Cross Bleed Blue Team (pictured) gathered for an official kick-off event on Tuesday, June 30. Dates and locations of Bleed Blue Drives will be posted once they become available.
