UW-Green Bay blood drive Thursday, Sept. 19

UW-Green Bay and the American Red Cross are hosting an upcoming blood drive on Thursday, Sept. 19. 2019 in Phoenix Room C from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Blood donations are always needed, but the need for blood is especially important now after the disaster of hurricane Dorian. Donors will receive a free haircut coupon for Sports Clips via email after donating. Walk-ins are welcome on donation day.

For an appointment, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or go to their website and enter the sponsor code: gbuwgb. You can also schedule appointments, view your blood type and results of your mini-physical and track your donations with the Red Cross Blood Donor App on the App Store and Google Play, or text BLOODAPP to 90999.

If you have a disability and would like to discuss accommodations, please contact Student Life at 920-465-2720.

Heat wave is coming, and so is the ice cream

With forecast highs in the 30s the next few days, it just makes sense that the University Union is repeating its popular Get the Scoop promotion on Wednesday (Feb. 19). Starting at noon in Leona Clouds Commons, $1 will buy you a double-scoop cone of Zanzibar Chocolate, Vanilla, Cookie Dough, Cotton Candy or the intriguingly named Kitty Kitty Bang Bang.

Mix your ice cream with… a blood donation

Wait.  That didn’t sound right. What we meant to say was that, along with Wednesday’s ice cream sale, also going on in that area is a Red Cross blood drive. The UW-Green Bay student athlete committee is hosting the drive just across the way from the ice cream stand, in the Phoenix Rooms. The hours are 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., so depending on when you donate, you can avail yourself of some $1 ice cream while you’re in the neighborhood. Walk-ups are welcome for the blood drive.

Stay warm, give blood

We’re told cold weather has kept people indoors and reduced blood donations for Wisconsin patients, and any blood they are getting is thick and sludgy. (Just kidding about that last part.) Anyway, the BloodCenter of Wisconsin tells us a UWGB Blood Drive is set for Tuesday (Jan. 28) in Phoenix Room B. You can reserve a time to donate at www.bcw.edu/UWGB — and direct any questions to Tony at (920) 901-0651 or Tony.Servais@bcw.edu.
