UNTHSC blood drive a success
UPDATE: More than 40 units of blood were collected at the drive, potentially saving more than 120 lives. Thank you, all who turned out and rolled up your sleeve. The next UNTHSC blood drive is scheduled for early March.
Every blood donation can save three people. You have a chance to do that in the Everett Atrium between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10 when Carter BloodCare brings us a blood drive open to students, employees and the public.
Plus, you could win a home party package: food and drinks for as many as 20 people and a new HD TV, perfect for watching that big football game on Feb. 3. Five people who donate to Carter BloodCare during January will win these packages in a random drawing.
And everyone who donates gets a Coca-Cola koozie and a beverage, as well as points redeemable online for your choice of additional items. You receive extra points if you sign up in advance and then show up. Click here to sign up.
