The blood drive, sponsored by Minnesota State Mankato’s Upward Bound, will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Centennial Student Union lower level, between the food court and game room.
Red Cross officials point out that blood supplies are low because of recent tornado disasters in Minneapolis, Missouri and elsewhere. Students, faculty, staff and the public are urged to donate.

The Minnesota State Mankato program serves students in high schools at Blue Earth, Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial, Madelia, Mankato East and West, Maple River and Riverbend Academy.
Those who want more information about the drive may contact Gladys Barbeau at (507) 389-1211.
