We promised to keep you posted about our next Blood Drive, and here it is! Below you will find all of the information you need about ACC’s next blood drive. If you have any questions or comments, you can leave a reply below this post.
American Career College Ontario is once again teaming up with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive on Monday, June 18, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. We ask our students, faculty, and our surrounding community to donate blood to help save lives. All donors will receive two tickets to the Laugh Factory, a voucher for two tickets to a LA Galaxy game, and a coupon for a free taco from Wahoo’s.
To schedule your appointment, or for more information, contact Lisa Leggette in Student Services at ACC-Ontario or log onto www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code: ACCOC.*
Why give blood**?
- One pint of blood helps an average of three people.
- About 1 in 7 people entering a hospital need blood.
- The #1 reason blood donors say they give blood is because they “want to help others.”
- The rarest blood type may be the one missing when it’s needed by a patient.
- If only one percent more of all Americans would give blood, blood shortages would disappear for the foreseeable future.
- “It’s about an hour of your time. It’s About Life.”
Thank you in advance to all who plan on donating and contributing to this great cause. We look forward to seeing you there!
