Fall Blood Drive Set at UW-River Falls


Oct. 22, 1010--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is holding a Red Cross Blood Drive Oct. 27 and 28 from noon-6 p.m. in the University Center’s Riverview Ballroom.

The event is open to the public and registration for appointment times is available online at www.redcross.org. The event sponsor code is ‘54022’. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Individuals with O positive blood types have the option of donating double reds (donating two units of blood cells), which takes a full hour verses the approximate half hour for single blood cells. A single whole blood donation can help save the lives of up to three people.

In the past, the American Red Cross has recognized UWRF’s blood drive as best collegiate blood drive in the northern region. It ranks second in the area for units of blood collected during a drive.

The event is sponsored by UWRF Greek Life. For more information, contact matthew.levine@uwrf.edu or call 715-425-4444.
