The Indiana University Northwest off-site location located at the Portage University Center is rallying to restock the shelves at area blood banks with a blood drive from 2 until 6 p.m., Thursday, April 18.

Current statistics report that someone in the U.S. needs donated blood every two seconds and more than 44,000 blood donations are needed daily. A single donated unit of blood can help save up to three lives.

To sign up for the American Red Cross blood drive, visit, and enter the sponsor code "iunwport" to schedule an appointment.  First time donors will need to create a profile.  Returning donors can log in by entering their e-mail address and date of birth as the default password.
