UNL Campus Red Cross Club is joining forces with the Pre-Optometry Club to help boost the Red Cross' blood supply during the winter months.
Faculty, staff, students and alumni from UNL can participate in the blood drive, Jan. 22 to Jan. 25.
Due to the recent frigid weather blood donations have dipped and are in high demand.
Dates and times of the UNL Winter Blood Drive are:
Jan. 22, 8a.m.-2p.m., East Campus by the Rec and Wellness Center
Jan. 22, 11a.m.-5p.m., City Campus by the Campus Rec Center
