Additiionally, TAPS has offered some free parking in support of the drive. The office will issue a “do not cite” for 8:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. on Jan. 27 in the East Remote Parking Lot.

Lastly, there have been recent changes to FDA regulations that govern blood drives. You can learn more about the changes at the FDA’s website.

We fully expect the Red Cross to embrace these new policies.
