Save the Date to Save Lives: Red Cross Blood Drive Hosted by RCC Associated Student Government

Blood Drive American Red CrossThe Associated Student Government of Rogue Community College (ASGRCC) has partnered with the American Red Cross to host three blood drives.

“The need for blood donors is constant. Each day thousands of units are needed to save patients in our hospitals. It’s the blood on the shelves that saves lives in an emergency. Volunteer blood donors are the only ones who can ensure adequate blood supplies,” stated Christina Martin, American Red Cross Pacific Northwest Blood Services Region Account Manager.
