FAYETTE, IOWA – (August 8, 2012) Upper Iowa University and LifeServe Blood Center are partnering to save lives. The next UIU blood drive will be held Monday, August 13, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Ballroom A at the UIU Student Center on the Fayette campus at 605 Washington Street.
During the summer months, the local blood supply can often drop down to less than a two day supply for blood types. Donations are needed now to help prevent a critical blood shortage. Everyone who registers to donate blood before September 1 will have the exclusive opportunity to redeem a "Starve a Mosquito" T-shirt from the LifeServe Blood Center online store for just 100 points.
