The University of Arkansas - Fort Smith will host its winter blood drive from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 29-30 in the Reynolds Room of the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center, located at 800 N. 49th Street.

The blood drive is sponsored by the UAFS Student Activities Office and the Campus Activities Board’s community events committee and is free and open to the public.  All donors will receive a free t-shirt and a health screening.

UAFS coordinates five blood drives each year in an effort to help reach out to potential blood donors on campus. The blood is provided to the Arkansas Blood Institute, a non-profit blood center whose volunteer donors provide 100 percent of the blood needed by patients in 40 Arkansas hospitals.

Drop-ins are welcome, or to schedule an appointment call 479-788-7663 or email
