Blood Drive at CCV Burlington, March 24, 1-5 PM

To honor Red Cross Month in March, the Community College of Vermont is hosting a Blood Drive on Tuesday, March 24th. Area residents and visitors alike are encouraged to give blood at the CCV's Burlington site between the hours of 1 PM and 5 PM. Anyone who is 17 years old and weighs at least 110 lbs. may be eligible to donate. The bloodmobile will be parked outside of CCV's 119 Pearl Street location in downtown Burlington.

To donate, you can simply walk-in or you can schedule an appointment by calling Kristi at 1-800-843-3500 ext. 3265. The blood drive is sponsored by the students in CCV's spring Phlebotomy course.

The American Red Cross holds blood drives in communities seven days a week. Please call 1-800-843-3500 or visit http://www.newenglandblood.org/ to find a blood drive near you. It’s a pint of blood for you, but for another, it could be a life saved.
