Join the Infirmary for a blood drive with Arkansas Blood Institute. Adults age 16 and older, can give blood from 10am-3pm, on Thursday, March 16, and from 6:30am-10:30am on Friday, March 17.
Donors will receive a free, vintage-style “Hero” t-shirt in their choice of color: blue, purple or green.
One blood donation can save as many as three lives, and takes only about an hour.
If donors choose to forgo the t-shirt, funds will be donated to Global Blood Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization helping secure much-needed supplies for blood centers in developing countries.
Arkansas Blood Institute, a non-profit blood center, serves over 30 hospitals and medical facilities in the state, including the CHI St. Vincent Health System and every major hospital in Central Arkansas, as well as in Fort Smith, Conway, Hot Springs and Pine Bluff.
Appointments are not required but can be made by visiting arkbi.org or calling (877) 340-8777.
