CCC Nursing Club Organizes Blood Drive for National Donor Month

Each year the President of the United States proclaims January as National Volunteer Blood Donor Month. The Clatsop Community College Nursing Club, Associated Student Government and the American Red Cross invite you to celebrate by donating a pint of blood and helping save a life.

The need for blood is constant, and volunteer donors give life-saving blood that is vital for patient care across the United States. Blood must be available before it is needed in order to help save the lives of people undergoing treatment for cancer, accident victims, and even some premature babies. Every day the American Red Cross counts on the generosity of blood donors to meet the needs of these patients.

Donating blood is quick, simple, and safe and a wonderful way to give the gift of life to a patient in need. On behalf of family, friends, and patients, the American Red Cross would like to thank past blood donors for their generous contributions and encourage new donors to give today.

Please email the CCC Nursing Club to schedule a blood donation appointment at Clatsop Community College, 1651 Lexington Avenue, Astoria on Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 9:30am to 3:00pm. Together we can save a life.

Clatsop Community College offers an Associate Degree in Nursing with a four-term Practical Nursing Certificate option. The Nursing Club hosts wellness activities on campus throughout the year. The Associated Student Government represents CCC students and offers opportunities for leadership development.
