Blood drive is coming soon

Ever thought of giving back to the community? Now is the chance to help – just donate blood.

Up ’til Dawn is sponsoring a blood drive Feb. 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the UC Ballroom.

The last blood drive exceeded the number of expected donors and more personnel had to come in to receive the donated blood.

NKU students and staff saved more than 282 lives, because of the 108 volunteers and 94 units of blood given.

“It made me very proud of my alma mater,” consultant for the Hoxworth Blood Center, Kathleen Glahn said.
