October 30, 2013 — FM and the American Red Cross are teaming up to sponsor a blood drive Tuesday, November 26, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the Large Lounge of the College Union. In celebration of FM’s 50th Anniversary, all donors will be eligible for one of many raffle prizes being awarded including gift cards to Applebee’s, House of Pizza, Panera Bread, Price Chopper, Subway, Union Hall Inn, and Wal-Mart.
Depending on the amount of blood units collected throughout the year at blood drives held at FM, The American Red Cross provides a scholarship of up to $2,500 for a returning FM student who works at the drive, donates blood, or both.
Donating blood is safe, simple and takes about 45-90 minutes. Supplies are sterile, used only once, and then incinerated. If you would like to make an appointment to give blood on November 26, please contact Darcelle Winchell at 736-FMCC (3622), ext. 8101 or call the American Red Cross at 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or visit their website at www.DonateBloodNow.org. Donating blood is simple, and your gift of life may help as many as three people. Sign-up to donate the gift of life today.
