The Associated Students of the University of New Mexico held the annual Halloween Blood Drive on Monday and Tuesday.
The two-day event drew campus attention, receiving 111 total donations. Last year, there were 115 donations.
The drive, hosted by ASUNM Community Experience, is a Halloween-themed tradition for the University.
“(Events like these) help save lives in this community and communities across the United States,” said Kailey Wulfert, the executive director of ASUNM Community Experience. “In times like these, it’s good to bring communities together to help other people.”
ASUNM Community Experience is a student service agency that focuses on community service on campus and throughout the city. It organizes and hosts community service events throughout the school year including Fall Frenzy, Spring Storm and food drives.
