Donors needed for Oct. 7 blood drive at UNMC 
UNMC will host a blood drive on Tuesday, Oct. 7 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Center for Healthy Living in the Student Life Center. Every blood donation is an opportunity to help someone in need. Giving blood really does help save lives. Despite the fact that giving blood is easy, safe and only takes about 1.25 hours, only 5 percent of eligible Americans donate blood. It is too easy to rationalize that someone else will fill the need. The need for blood is great and never ends. The Red Cross has an electronic scheduling system that will be used for this drive. Those wishing to donate can schedule appointments for the drive at http://givebloodgivelife.org. Participants can find the UNMC drive by first clicking on our region and then entering the UNMC drive sponsor code -- which is 1199 -- or by entering an Omaha ZIP code (68198) and scrolling down to the UNMC drive on Oct. 7. Those who are experience problems with the registration Web site can call Peter Pellerito for assistance at 559-5253.
