Donors Needed for Blood Drive at Remington College-Little Rock Campus on September 22

Goal of Remington College 3 Lives campaign is to help meet rising need for minority blood donors

Little Rock, Ark. – (August 23, 2011) – Blood – it may all be red, but it’s definitely not all the same.

That’s why Remington College-Little Rock Campus is continuing its series of blood drives to recruit more minority blood donors to benefit local residents who need specific types of blood as part of their treatment for sickle cell disease and other blood disorders.

The next blood drive will be held on Thursday, September 22 from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

Remington College has partnered with America’s Blood Centers (ABC) and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) for a series of blood drives on all its campuses. The effort is called 3 Lives – because three lives may be saved for every one pint of blood donated.

Remington College recently received ABC’s National Partner of the Year Award for helping to raise awareness of the need for blood donors and has collected more than 1,400 pints of blood in 2011.

Singer AJ Green, spokesperson for the 3 Lives campaign, is an example of someone who requires a specific type of blood. Green, 19, has sickle cell disease and has received 17 blood transfusions as part of his treatment.

“Transfusions allow me and other sickle cell patients to manage the disease and live our lives,” said Green.

While the focus is on recruiting minority donors, everyone is encouraged to attend the drive and donate blood. All the blood collected will be used to help people in the Little Rock area.

Remington College-Little Rock Campus is located at 19 Remington Drive.
