The American Red Cross Blood Services and UALR have an alliance that spans decades, but for the last several years, the UALR Staff Senate has played host to the campus’ blood drives. The last three drives yielded over 150 productive units of blood.
The Spring blood drive held March 12 at the Student Housing Commons collected 40 units of blood, which exceeded the goal of 35 units. Special thanks go to the many student volunteers who were on hand to facilitate the donation process, and who did such great work in promoting the event. And thanks to Senators Rikki Turner, Allen Houston, Chuck Werninger, Frances Frazier, Michael Yang, Jamie Jilka, and Leanna Payton for volunteering to work the drive.
To those of you who “rolled up your sleeves”, you really are heroes! Your donation can help up to three patients. You support is greatly appreciated. We hope to see you again in approximately 56 days!
