Blood Drive at Northwestern Aug. 8, 2012

Lifesource and Northwestern University are partnering for an all-day blood donation drive in north Evanston on Wednesday, Aug. 8 at RYan Field. Along with the warm weather comes an increase in events, ranging from auto accidents to shootings, that lead to increased need for blood at area hospitals. Many slots are still available during the day for the "Purple Pride" event. Details are at the Lifesource website.
