The Red Cross is encouraging residents to roll up their sleeves this week.
The Manhattan Community Blood Drive will take place Monday and Tuesday at Pottorf Hall in CiCo Park. Red Cross Kansas District spokesperson Kristi Ingalls explains there are some added bonused if you come out to donate blood.
She also recommends using the Red Cross Blood Donor App to schedule your appointment.
Ingalls says the Red Cross is always aiming to keep the shelves stocked so blood is always readily available to patients who need it.
Appointments can also be scheduled at redcrossblood.org. The drive runs from noon to 5:45 pm Monday and 7:30 am to 1 pm Tuesday.
There are still plenty of openings, with Ingalls saying their goal is to collect 74 pints Monday and 50 pints on Tuesday.
