9th Annual Maureen Grant Memorial Blood Drive – Monday, March 2, 2020 from 12:00 – 5:00 pm in 116 Memorial Library

February 17, 2020

The 9th Annual Maureen Grant Memorial Blood Drive will be held on Monday, March 2, 2020 from 12:00 – 5:00 pm in 116 Memorial Library.

UW–Madison Librarians have honored the memory of longtime colleague, Maureen Grant, who was struck and killed by a bus in 2011, by holding a blood drive with the American Red Cross each year. Grant was a lifelong Red Cross blood donor who frequently donated at the Libraries’ blood drives and in her hometown of New Glarus, Wisconsin.

In the past, donors have given enough blood to save more than 200 lives.

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

  • Donate. You can make a reservation to donate here or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (sponsor code: uwlibraries).

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

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