Remington College to host blood drive 

remington

Remington College Dallas Campus invites people to give blood at its upcoming 3 Lives Blood Drive on the campus on Tuesday, June 21 from 8:45 am – 2 pm.

Remington College’s blood partner for the event is Carter Blood Care.

Remington College founded the 3 Lives program to be a national effort to recruit minority blood donors and help provide local hospitals with 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, Remington College has collected more than 13,000 pints of blood through the 3 Lives program. And since 1 pint of blood can save 3 lives, that’s enough blood to save more than 39,000 lives. While the focus of 3 Lives is to highlight the need for minority blood donors, everyone is encouraged to give blood at the event. Donors must be 17 years of age or older and 110 pounds. All the blood collected will go to local hospitals and medical centers to help people in the community.

Remington College-Dallas Campus is located at 1800 Eastgate Drive in Garland. For more on the 3 Lives program, visit www.3Lives.com.
