Merced Community Blood Drive

April 8, 2020
Dear Campus Community,
At UC Merced we are focused on the safety and success of our students, and of the faculty and staff who work so hard to educate and serve those students.
Consistent with the University of California’s mission of teaching, research and public service, we also seek opportunities to help our community. One such opportunity — made even more important by the current crisis — presents itself in Merced next week.
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, the American Red Cross will hold a Merced Community Blood Drive at the Italo American Lodge, 1281 W. 18th St. It is sponsored by Assembly Member Adam Gray, a longtime champion for the people of the Central Valley and a great friend of UC Merced.
Assembly Member Gray and I have signed up to donate. If you are able to join us, you can register here , or find another drive closer to home.
I ask everyone at UC Merced who can safely do so to join me in donating blood. So many people are facing dire medical needs that require blood or plasma, and in this way we can do something incredibly positive during a crisis that has limited much of what we are usually able to accomplish.
Nathan Brostrom
Interim Chancellor
