Emergency need blood drive set for Friday on campus

The American Red Cross is holding an emergency need blood drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday in the Morris Library first floor rotunda.

Blood supplies of all blood types are needed, Michelle Johnson, an account representative with the American Red Cross, said. Blood is going out to hospitals faster than is coming in, and less than three percent of the population donates blood.

Potential donors may just show up or call 800-733-2767 (800-Red Cross) to schedule an appointment.
