The American Red Cross has scheduled a blood drive at the University of Toledo this week.
The All-American Blood Drive is to be from 7 a.m. to6 p.m. Friday in Rocket Hall on UT s main campus.
Summer is a pivotal time for donations because about 15 to 20 percent of the area blood supply comes from high school and college students, said Annie Marckel, spokesman for the American Red Cross Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region.
Donors will receive a T-shirt and will be served slices of pizza and apple pie.
Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh between 110 and 350 pounds, and be in good health. Identification is required.
