Culver’s of Joliet’s was on hand to provide scoops of custard to blood donors during a record-breaking blood drive hosted by the UIC Athletic Department and LifeSource on Sept. 19 at the UIC Pavilion.

More than 750 units of blood were collected and over 1,000 dishes of free custard were scooped.
 
On Sept. 24, LifeSource announced that its name has been changed to Vitalant, joining a network of 10 blood center brands across the country.

As one of the nation’s oldest and largest comprehensive transfusion medicine organizations serving local communities across 40 states including Illinois, Vitalant’s 127 nationwide donation centers and 30,000 mobile blood drives welcome more than 780,000 donors who supply 1.8 million donations per year.
