The Center for Community Service will be hosting a blood drive for the University community on Tuesday, Aug. 12, from 11:15 to 4:15 p.m. in Konover Campus Center.
Currently donations in Connecticut are down, and the American Red Cross is asking folks to assist in bringing their levels up this summer. The Red Cross has had about 80,000 fewer donations than expected since May. Just two extra donors per drive will ensure that blood products are available for patients this summer.
To make an appointment to donate blood, please visit this link: http://www.redcrossblood.org/make-donation. Enter the sponsor code "UHart." Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are strongly encouraged.
