For the past 2 years, UW–Madison Librarians honored the memory of Maureen Grant, a longtime colleague who was struck and killed by a bus in 2011, by holding a blood drive with the American Red Cross. Grant was a lifelong Red Cross blood donor who frequently donated at the Libraries’ blood drives and in her hometown of New Glarus, Wisconsin.
The 3rd Annual Maureen Grant Memorial Blood Drive will be held on Monday, March 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in 116 Memorial Library.

In the past, donors have given as much blood to save more than 150 lives.

There are several ways that you can participate in this year’s blood drive in memory of Maureen:

  • 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. 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.
If you any questions about volunteering to staff this drive or if you have questions about donating, please feel free to contact Steve Frye or Jeff Gayton.
