2nd Annual Maureen Grant Memorial Blood Drive

American-Red-Cross-Logo-Vertical-300x261In 2011, longtime UW Libraries employee Maureen Grant was struck by a bus while walking across University Avenue and was killed.  Grant was a lifelong Red Cross blood donor who frequently donated at the UW Libraries blood drives and in her hometown of New Glarus, Wisconsin.

Last March, the UW Libraries sponsored a blood drive in memory of Maureen Grant, and that tradition continues this year. The 2nd Annual Maureen Grant Memorial Blood Drive will be held on Tuesday, March 5 from 9am-3pm in 116 Memorial Library (west corridor).

There are several ways that you can participate in this year’s blood drive, in addition to giving blood.


Here’s how you can help:

  • Volunteer to staff the drive.  There are slots for registrars, blood donor aides, refreshment aides, and folks to help set-up and tear-down the Red Cross stations and supplies. You can sign-up HERE to volunteer.
  • Donate blood.  You can make a reservation to donate HERE, or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (sponsor code: uw libraries).

Please note:   A blood donor card or drivers license, or two other forms of ID are required at check-in.
