After five consecutive years with a 1,000-pint blood donation goal, Appalachian and the Community Together
has raised its goal to 1,200 pints.
The seventh annual blood drive will be held Wednesday as part of Appalachian’s Homecoming 2013. The drive will be held at Holmes Convocation Center and is open to students, faculty and the community.
ACT Education Coordinator Rebecca Burwell said that an increase in number of blood drive supporters over the years has had an affect on the change in this years’ goal.
