The UA Little Rock Staff Senate will hold a blood drive from 12:30-4 p.m. Monday, April 19, in the Fitness Center in the Donaghey Student Center.
UA Little Rock is partnering with the Arkansas Blood Institute, a nonprofit blood center whose volunteer donors provide every drop of blood needed by patients in 32 Arkansas hospitals.
A limited number of appointments are available to allow for social distancing. All donors must wear a mask and should schedule an appointment by visiting this link. Staff Senate has a goal of 20 donors for the blood drive.
In order to reduce waiting time by up to 15 minutes, donors can answer the pre-appointment questions online by visiting the Donor Express website on the day of their appointment.
All donors will receive a free T-shirt and be entered into a drawing for a $250 Visa gift card. Additionally, all donations are being tested for COVID-19 antibodies to identify potential convalescent plasma donors.
For more information, contact Reed Claiborne, chair of the Blood Drive Committee, at 501-569-3000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
