Stanbridge College is pleased to announce that the American Red Cross collected over 18 units of blood from our Nursing, IT and Occupational Therapy students, faculty and staff. According to the Red Cross, this will assist in saving the lives of 54 people in need of blood transfusions.
We would like to thank all of the donors and volunteers who participated in this event. The Red Cross was very excited to have an overwhelming response of appointments and walk-ins. View a video and photos of this event on the Stanbridge Blog.
According to Suzanne Jennings, Donor Recruitment Associate for the American Red Cross, “Summer is critical time for the American Red Cross. Our main donors, some of who are High School and College students, are not always available due to vacation schedules and other seasonal distractions. We are thankful for all of the donors and volunteers at Stanbridge College who gave their blood and time at Tuesday’s blood drive.”
The Stanbridge College Blood Drive is a quarterly event coordinated by the REACH – Beyond the Classroom Serving Learning and Civic Engagement initiative. The REACH initiative provides students with opportunities to give back to their local Orange County and global community while earning credit towards coursework in a structured environment.
