Hofstra University's Blood Donation

Blood Drive

The Human Resources Office coordinates community blood drives throughout the academic year. The drives are generally held in the Student Cente and everyone is welcome to participate.

Appointments to give blood may be made by calling Human Resources at (516) 463-6859 or by emailing Elizabeth at elizabeth.lorentzen@hofstra.edu. There is provision for walk-in donors as well.

For information regarding medical eligibility to donate blood, including ineligibility because of travel outside of the United States, please call the LI Blood Services at (800) 688-0900.

  • Must have valid photo or signature ID.
  • Minimum weight 110 lbs.
  • Between 16-75 years of age (16 year olds must have parental consent available at www.nybloodcenter.org)

  • Tuesday, October 29, 2019

DONATIONS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. Close to 2,000 men,women,and children in our community,including cancer,transplant and surgery patients, trauma victims, newborn babies, and many others need blood transfusions each day.Since blood lasts only 42 days, area hospitals are in real need. You can change that. One pint of blood is separated into components that can save several lives. Please consider making a donation and giving the gift of life. Thank you.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Human Resources at (516) 463-6859 or email Elizabeth!
