West Virginia University’s Army ROTC is hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Feb. 23 to help replenish local supplies.

The drive will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Stansbury Hall gym lobby.

Since Jan. 1, more than 750 blood drives have been canceled due to winter weather.

More blood is needed to ensure that patients in the community receive the help they need to recover.

People are asked to sign up to donate by visiting http://www.givelife.org/index.cfm?group=registration&hlc=wvurotc&hostlookupcode=wvurotc or by contacting Christa Wise at cwise6@mix.wvu.edu .
