DETROIT — The American Red Cross and Marygrove College Wellness enter another chapter in their effort to help save lives with the announcement of a community blood drive to be held Thursday (Nov. 19) from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on the campus of Marygrove College. Open to the public, the blood drive will take place inside the Madame Cadillac Building’s Main Dining Room as William Pugh, Marygrove’s Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Medicine & Wellness, aims to continue the College’s recent success hosting the important event.

The upcoming blood drive is the first of two scheduled during the 2015-16 academic year as Pugh’s wellness department once again gears up to save lives within the community and beyond.

Much like past blood drives, the upcoming event will be co-chaired by current and former Marygrove student-athletes representing the American Red Cross and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Leadership Program. Volleyball sophomore Hailey Brandes joins the program for her first full year and will work alongside former women’s soccer standout Kaitlyn Vigna to assist Pugh in making the upcoming blood drive a success.

Vigna enters year three assisting Marygrove blood drives as part of the NAIA’s Leadership Program.

Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments will receive priority so please schedule your appointment today. Those interested in donating can register online at or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS. If registering online, please use sponsor code: marygrovecollege.

“We’ve said it before, but this truly is an extremely critical time for our community’s blood supply, said Pugh. “Walk-ins are welcome, but we are urging everyone to make an appointment today to reserve their spot and help us save lives. I look forward to Thursday’s blood drive and thank everyone in advance for helping save lives in our community.”
