Blood Drive

Each year, the USS Nokomis Star Trek fan club sponsors a blood drive with the American Red Cross. This will mark the 14th year that the blood drive has been held at CONvergence, with over 500 donors participating in previous years. You can save up to three lives while at CONvergence, so come and donate!

Tips for Donors

  • Sign up early so your donation doesn’t interfere with any events you’re planning to attend.
  • If you plan to wear a costume at CONvergence, make sure to design it to accommodate a bandage on your arm if necessary.
  • Make it a point to stay hydrated. CONvergence ConSuite offers soda, water, milk and, in the mornings, juice. CoF2E2 Free Coffee Shop has coffee, tea and steamers.
  • Eat something. Especially when donating blood, it’s very important to eat. CONvergence CONsuite has rice, soup, sandwiches, snacks and many other munchies.
