Remington College has partnered with America’s Blood Centers (ABC) and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) for a series of blood drives on all its campuses. The effort is called 3 Lives - because three lives may be saved for every one pint of blood donated.
Remington College recently received ABC’s National Partner of the Year Award for helping to raise awareness of the need for blood donors. So far this year, Remington College has collected more than 600 pints of blood and hopes to meets its goal of collecting 3000 pints in 2011.
The 3 Lives campaign highlights the need for minority blood donors – especially African Americans. According to the SCDAA, minority blood donors are in demand for several reasons:
While the focus is on recruiting minority donors, everyone is encouraged to attend the drive and donate blood. All the blood collected will be used to help people in the Houston area.
