Black River Technical College (BRTC) in Paragould will host a Blood Drive to benefit the American Red Cross on Thursday, August 21, 2014. The Blood Drive will be held from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm in room TC113. Please make sure to eat before donating and you must weigh at least 110 pounds to donate. All donor blood types are encouraged to donate. The BRTC – Paragould Campus is located at 1 Black River Drive (next to Anchor Packaging off of N. 12th Ave.).
The American Red Cross’ program this summer is Live. Give. Life. and runs June 1 through August 31, 2014. This program is to increase donations for 16 – 24 year old donors and awards a youth coordinator a scholarship for the units of blood donated. Our youth coordinator for this blood drive is Amber Pentecost a 2013 Marmaduke High School Graduate. With as little as 25 units we could help her receive a $100.00 scholarship. Let’s roll up our sleeve to help this young lady get a scholarship.
Questions can be directed to Katrina Bozarth at 870-239-0969 ext. 5200.
