Thursday, students at Florida A&M University rolled up their sleeves to save lives.

FAMU is hosting a blood drive Thursday and Friday at the school of pharmacy.

A spokesperson with the Southeastern Community Blood Center says there's always a need for O positive and O negative blood.

The center is a bit low on B positive blood as well.

"We have had an overwhelming response from all of the students and faculty here. We hope to draw at least 75 units of blood between the two days. We hope it will help out our blood supply in the area," says blood center spokesperson Eliza Leporin.

It's been proven that one donation can save three lives, so the blood center is urging you to give when you can.
