“This is our pint-for-a-pint blood drive. After donating, donors will receive a pint of free ice cream,” said William Byers, UT nursing student and intern with the American Red Cross.

“It’s extremely important for people to participate because about 42,000 units of blood are needed to sustain U.S. hospitals for one single day,” Byers said.

An appointment is not necessary, but highly encouraged. Students and employees can schedule an appointment by visiting redcross.org.
