The University of Arkansas - Fort Smith will host a blood drive from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sept. 19-20 in the Reynolds Room of the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center, with donors receiving a free T-shirt and free health screening.
The blood drive is sponsored by the UAFS Student Activities Office and is free and open to the public.
