Donors are invited to give blood between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5, through Wednesday, Oct. 7, at the MTSU Campus Recreation Center.

“We’re probably running 20 to 25 blood drives a month in and around the county,” said Wright. “However, most of them have a blood drive goal of collecting, you know, maybe between 20 and 30 pints of blood depending on who we’re working with that day. The goal here for the MTSU blood drive is to see over 700 people.”

“Historically speaking, our students have always stepped up when they know there’s a need,” added Wiley. “Every year, for this blood drive, it’s amazing just how many students come and show support.”

MTSU has won four of the six competitions with WKU. The winner of this year’s drives will be announced Saturday, Oct. 10, at WKU’s Smith Stadium in Bowling, Green, Kentucky, during the football game between the Blue Raiders and the Hilltoppers.
