UA Little Rock Staff Senate to hold Blood Drive Oct. 27

The UA Little Rock Staff Senate will hold a Halloween-themed blood drive on Oct. 27.

The UA Little Rock Staff Senate will hold a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27, in the Fitness Center in the Donaghey Student Center.

UA Little Rock Staff Senate 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. All donations will also be tested for COVID-19 antibodies.

All students, employees, and members of the public are welcome to donate. Those who would like to donate can make an appointment by arkbi.org, click Give Blood, and enter sponsor code 162W. Walk-in appointments are also welcome. All donors should wear a facemask and bring a photo ID.

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 glow-in-the-dark t-shirt and a free ticket to the Little Rock Zoo. During this Halloween-themed blood drive, donors are also encouraged to wear a costume for a chance to win university prizes.

For more information, contact Reed Claiborne, chair of the Blood Drive Committee, at 501-916-6104 or rhclaiborne@ualr.edu.
