Carroll Community College Hosts American
Red Cross Blood Drives
Carroll Community College will host two blood drives, this spring and summer, at the 1601 Washington Rd. campus in Westminster, Md.
Carroll is partnering with the American Red Cross in their efforts to collect blood and distribute to individuals in need. Interested individuals who are eligible can volunteer to donate blood on Tuesday, March 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and on Tuesday, July 27, 2006. The collection center will be set up in the lower level of the college by the café.
To sign up for an advance appointment, or to volunteer time to staff the canteen or registration table, contact the college's Center for Service Learning at 410-386-8413 or stop by room A 118 in the Great Hall.
The March 21st blood drive is sponsored by the college's Student Government Organization. All donors in the month of March receive a Red Cross baseball cap.
Last November, the college collected over 60 units of blood and this year, hopes to exceed last year's turnout.
