The Student Bar Association at Samford University's Cumberland School of Law will sponsor an American Red Cross blood drive Tuesday (JAN. 17), 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., in the Great Room of Robinson Hall law building.

According to SBA president Casey Graves, organizers hope to meet a goal of at least 40 donors.

Community residents, as well as Samford faculty, staff and students, are invited to roll up their sleeves during the drive.
