The University of Arkansas - Fort Smith will host a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, and Thursday, Jan. 30, in the Reynolds Room of the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center on the UAFS campus, located at 800 N. 49th Street. January is National Volunteer Blood Donor Month, making this month's drive especially important.


Every donor will receive a “Friends” themed t-shirt and a health screening. Donors who bring a friend will also be entered to win a Friends Night Out gift package that comes with two $10 Malco gift cards and a $50 Olive Garden gift card! 


UAFS coordinates five blood drives each year in an effort to help patients in more than 40 Arkansas hospitals. The donated blood is provided to the Arkansas Blood Institute, a non-profit blood center. 


Interested donors may drop in or schedule an appointment by contacting the Student Activities Office at 479-788-7699 or
