Blood drive Feb. 20

The Colby Community College practical nursing program will be assisting with the American Red Cross blood drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 20, in the Robert Burnett Student Union.

Currently, the Red Cross is facing a blood emergency and issued an urgent call for eligible individuals of all blood types to give. Blood is a perishable commodity and must be regularly replaced. Each donation can help save several lives.

To donate blood, a person must be in general good health and feeling well, be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds. Donors must present identification at registration in the form of a Red Cross donor card, a valid driver’s license or other official photo identification.

Donors receive a T-shirt while supplies last. Appointments can be made by calling (785) 460-4797 or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code "ColbyCC."
