HAYWOOD COMMUNITY COLLEGE TO SPONSOR

RED CROSS BLOOD AND BONE MARROW DRIVE

Every two seconds someone in this country needs blood. Haywood Community College is helping make sure that blood is available by sponsoring a blood and bone marrow drive with the American Red Cross on Tuesday, September 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The college is located at 185 Freedlander Drive in Clyde, NC.

By sponsoring a blood and bone marrow drive, Haywood Community College is helping save and improve the lives of individuals in need of blood. In addition, their sponsorship ensures that a safe blood supply is available at all times for all members of the community. Free t-shirts will be given to all presenting donors at this drive.

Donors of all types are needed to help the American Red Cross provide more than 1,500 units of blood each day to meet the needs of patients in our area hospitals.



Donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in general good health. Please call Cynthia Webb at 627-4646 to schedule your appointment.
