49ers for Life Blood Drive

UNC Charlotte and the American Red Cross are partnering for the fifth annual 49ers for Life Blood Drive from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Jan. 21 at the Barnhardt Student Activity Center, 9201 University City Blvd. This year’s goal is to collect 1,000 pints, topping last year’s goal of 800 pints. Appalachian State University’s record will be beaten if more than 1,315 pints are donated during the local drive.

According to organizers, one pint of blood can help save the lives of up to three people. 49ers for Life Blood Drive participants will receive a free T-shirt and food and numerous giveaways will be featured throughout the day. Those who schedule an appointment to donate (use sponsor code 49ers4Life) will be entered to win an iPad. Details: bit.ly/1dq9Mir.
