Hello, CCON!

Our Red Cross Blood drive will take place one week from today (February 2, 2018) in the Student Lounge from 10 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  Thank you to the many students who have already signed up to work the registration table, the canteen and to donate blood.  The response has been fantastic!  There are still 6, 30 minute slots needed for the registration table and the canteen.  There are still 13 of 25 appointment slots available for blood donors.  Donors do not have to be CCON students.  Please extend an inviation to your family and friends to donate and support our blood drive. 

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.  Be sure to tell them you want to attend the Centra School of Nursing blood drive. You can go to redcrossblood.org 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.

For any students who serves as a volunteer and/or donor, there will be a raffle for a drawing for several prizes.  The grand prize is a gift basket of goodies that will include movie tickets, popcorn, candy, and a Kroger gift card.  In addition, all volunteers and donors will recieve a certificate of participation.

Thank you for giving of your time and blood to the American Red Cross!
