Owen’s Community College hosted a blood drive for the Red Cross on April 13. A blood drive is held at Owens every three months, which is the amount of time you have to wait between blood donations.
Charge Nurse Holly Blanchard said that we had a good turnout of community members this drive. She also said “the Red Cross needs O- and O+ blood types the most.”
Although there was not a high student turn out this time we did have a lot of community members come to participate. Chris Perry, from Perrysburg, said he donates every time Owens does a drive. When asked what makes him want to donate blood he said, “I was in a motorcycle accident when I was 16 and I needed a lot of blood. I figured since I used so much I should give back now that I’m healthy”
