Pitt blood drive donors eligible for prizes

Pitt and the Central Blood Bank of Pittsburgh have launched the faculty and staff “Pitt 4 Life” 2003 blood drives.

Participants who donate blood five times during calendar year 2003 are eligible to win raffle prizes as part of the blood bank’s corporate frequent donor plan. Donors who register under the University’s assigned group number — CU19-0020 — can win the grand prize of a $300 Wal-Mart gift certificate, and two first prizes of $50 Wal-Mart gift certificates.

Pitt has designated on-campus blood drive dates: April 8, June 17, Sept. 9 and Nov. 18. Other dates can be scheduled through the Central Blood Bank and at community blood donor centers.

To schedule an appointment to donate blood, contact Pitt’s Gwen Watkins at 4-7702, or the Central Blood Bank at 412/209-7010.

In addition, the Central Blood Bank, in cooperation with DaimlerChrysler Corp., will raffle off a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser to anyone who registers at a mobile blood drive or community donor center by Feb. 28. The drawing will be held March 5. For the car raffle, no blood donation is required.
