The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 18 and 19, in the Thompson Student Union Ingman Room.

Appointments and walk-ins are welcome from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To schedule an appointment, go to the American Red Cross website and use the code UTMAIN, or call 1.800.RED.CROSS (733.2767).

Donors will receive a Humankind T-shirt while supplies last.

“Our goal is to collect more than 100 pints of blood during the two-day period,” Angie O’Brien, account representative with the American Red Cross, said. “As a UToledo grad, I know the students, faculty and staff will roll up their sleeves to help.”

She offered tips for donors: Eat iron-enriched food, start drinking water prior to the day of the drive, and get some rest.

Blood donors must bring a photo ID or Red Cross donor card to the drive.
