ITU Blood Drive

Be part of a life saving team

Every two seconds someone needs a blood transfusion. Blood is needed for surgeries, emergencies, medical procedures, and cancer treatments.

ITU is doing its part to help by hosting a blood drive among its staff and faculty. The blood drive comes as a partnership between the University and the Silicon Valley Chapter of Silicon Valley. Our partnership is a great example of how we can work with partners to improve our community and the lives of people in Silicon Valley.ARC_Logo_Bttn_Vert_RGB
