Make time to give at University of Kansas Blood Drive
The American Red Cross is partnering with the University of Kansas to host its annual fall blood drive Sept. 29 through Oct. 3. The Red Cross and blood drive organizers are looking to collect over 300 pints blood, which will help to save close to 1,000 lives.
“The Red Cross is excited to once again team up with KU for this blood drive,” said Tricia Quinn, Central Plains Blood Services Region. “We always receive tremendous support from blood donors at the university.”
In addition to helping save lives, presenting donors will receive a KU T-shirt, while supplies last.
