LIFE SOUTH HOSTING SEVERAL BLOOD DRIVES ON UA’S CAMPUS THIS WEEK

Blood Drive

With flu season in full swing, the American Red Cross is urging healthy donors to give blood or platelets to ensure that local hospitals have a large enough supply for those in need.

Life South hosted a blood drive at Julia tutwiler Hall on Tuesday. Life South will host another campus blood drive at Ridgecrest South Hall on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Anyone can donate as long as they are in good health and have not recently traveled to malaria-risk countries.

The Red Cross says that receiving a flu shot does not impact a person’s ability to give blood.
