SEEDS partners with the American Red Cross to host four blood drives throughout the year.
On-campus blood drives are listed on Reed’s events calendar and are open to Reed students, staff, faculty, and the broader Portland community. All drives run from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Kaul Auditorium. You can register in advance with the American Red Cross: enter the sponsor code REEDCOLLEGE.
Many people find it difficult to make it to the Red Cross to give blood unless there is a national emergency. But smaller emergencies happen every day for which patients require blood to support a treatment that could save their lives.
