Blood Drive

Blood drive Feb. 11

Tue Feb 2, 2021

The Colby Community College practical nursing program will be assisting with the American Red Cross blood drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11, in the Robert Burnett Student Union.

With the ongoing pandemic, donors are needed to meet the needs of patient care. All blood, platelet, and plasma donations are tested for COVID-19 antibodies.

To donate blood, a person must be in good health and feel 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.

Appointments can be made by calling (785) 460-4797, emailing healthassistant@colbycc.edu, or visiting www.redcrossblood.org and entering sponsor code "ColbyCC."
