Reservations are encouraged. Those who sign up through the Red Cross beforehand can take advantage of our new Staff Senate shuttle service, where we’ll drive you to and from your appointment. To schedule an appointment, please go to www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code: UALR.

Staff Senate partners with the Red Cross, the world wide not-for-profit institute and the nation’s largest  blood bank.
