Remington College is urging people in the Dallas area to donate blood at its upcoming
3 Lives blood drive, a national effort to recruit minority blood donors and help supply local hospitals with blood. The effort has resulted in more than 12,000 pints of blood collected since the program began – that’s enough blood to save more than 36,000 lives!
Why focus on minority blood donors? According to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, African American donors provide blood with unique antigens that are vital for people with sickle cell disease – which affects 70,000 people in the U.S. – as well as patients with other blood disorders.
While the focus of 3 Lives is to highlight the need for minority blood donors, everyone is encouraged to give blood at the event; anyone 17 years or older and 110 pounds can donate blood.
All the blood collected will go to LOCAL hospitals and medical centers to help people in the community.
