Remington College Dallas to hold blood drive
Remington College invites people to give blood at its upcoming 3 Lives Blood Drive at the Dallas campus located at 1800 Eastgate Drive in Garland. The drive will be held Wednesday, March 2, from 8:45 a.m. – 2 p.m. Remington College is partnering with Carter Blood Care for this event.
Remington College founded the 3 Lives program to be a national effort to recruit minority blood donors and help provide local hospitals with needed blood. Minority donors – particularly African-American donors – are in high demand because they provide blood with unique antigens that are vital for patients with sickle cell disease and other blood disorders.
Nationally, the college has collected more than 13,000 pints of blood through the 3 Lives Blood Drive program. And because one pint of blood can save three lives, that is enough blood to save more than 39,000 lives.
While the focus of the 3 Lives Blood Drive program is to highlight the need for minority blood donors, everyone is encouraged to give blood at the event. Donors are required to be 17 years of age or older and 110 pounds.
All the blood that is collected at the March 2 drive will go to local hospitals and medical centers to help people in the community.
