UNLPD hosting 9/11 Remembrance Day blood drive

Two university police officers give blood during the university's homecoming week blood drive in the Nebraska Union.

UNLPD will host a blood drive in honor of 9/11 Remembrance Day.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Police Department has partnered with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive Sept. 11, 9/11 Remembrance Day.

Alli Schultze, dispatch supervisor, has assisted in coordinating UNLPD’s fourth American Red Cross Blood Drive that will take place 12:30-6:30 p.m. Sept. 11 in the north interior bus lobby of UNLPD.

“There is always a critical need for blood in our nation; in fact, every two seconds someone in the United States is in need of blood, and the American Red Cross provides about 40% of our nation’s blood supply needs. Not everyone has the means to provide monetary donations, but many people carry the ability to provide this tangible donation that can make a real difference to someone. As both a regular blood donor and someone that was once the recipient of another’s generous donation, I truly understand how important blood donation is and how easy it is to help save a life,” Schultze said.
