The University of South Florida, one of the largest donating organizations in Tampa Bay, is kicking off a massive drive to support OneBlood, Tampa Bay’s local not-for-profit blood center.
Through Oct. 26, all lifesaving donors who donate at one of the scheduled campus drives will get a limited edition ‘Bulls Blood Donor’ t-shirt.
Also, as a special gift only to USF students and faculty who donate, Ikea Tampa will be giving a voucher redeemable for a $10 Ikea gift card. Proper USF ID is required to claim the Ikea gift.
All donors, regardless of who is sponsoring the drive, always get a wellness check up of blood pressure, pulse, temperature and iron count, including a cholesterol screening.
Locations include both the Tampa and St. Petersburg campuses.
