The SGA and SNA are hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive in our Student Lounge on Friday, February 2, 2018 from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.  Volunteers and Donors are needed.  Volunteers are needed at the check in table and at the canteen.  Donors are desperately needed because the blood supply in our area is critically low.  There will be a table set up in the entrance of the school next week where you can sign up to volunteer. 

There are several ways to sign up for a blood donation appointment.  You can call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and schedule an appointment over the phone.  You can go to to sign up.  At the top of the website, put the zip code of 24501 in the search box (top right).  Local blood drives will appear on the left side of the page.  Scroll through until you find the "Centra School of Nursing" blood drive for February 2, 2018.  Click on our blood drive and available appointment times will be shown.  The third method is to download the Blood Donor App onto your mobile phone.  you can access an appointment time from the App.

Thank you in advance for supporting our 4th CCON blood drive!  Be on the look out for an upcoming announcement about prizes and incentives that will be available for your participation!
