Gulf Coast Regional
Blood Center


The PLS Upsilon Chapter collaborates with the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center to host blood drives on the University of Houston Campus biannually. Members helped screen and recruit blood donors as well as answer frequently asked questions regarding blood donations. Volunteers were recruited using flyers, word of mouth, and emails to University of Houston College of Pharmacy students, faculty, and staff. PLS occasionally teams up with the University of Houston Rho Chi Society to bring these events to life.


Be The Match
Bone Marrow Drive

The PLS Upsilon chapter often collaborates with Be The Match to hold bone marrow drives. A representative from the Be The Match organization and members help educate students and answer questions about donating. With some paperwork and a quick cheek swab, students can join the bone marrow registry to potentially save a life. PLS occasionally teams up with the University of Houston Rho Chi Society to bring these events to life.
