Associated Students of UNM (ASUNM) Community Experience (CE) agency is partnering with Vitalant to host the ‘We’re Out for Blood’ Halloween blood drive.
CE is the ASUNM community service agency that hosts several campus wide community service events such as Fall Frenzy, Spring Storm, etc., and Vitalant is a blood donation company that consists of a coast-to-coast network of donation centers.
According to Vitalant, “Many people believe that most blood is needed after major disasters. However, daily personal emergencies and ongoing medical needs of thousands of patients require a constant and ready blood supply. It’s the blood already on hospital shelves that saves lives.”
By donating to blood drives people can potentially help patients within their community and across the country when they need transfusions.
The Halloween Blood Drive will take place on Thursday Oct. 28 and Friday Oct. 29 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in SUB Ballroom A.
