News Journal



WILMINGTON – Wilmington College will partner with Community Blood Center to host a community blood drive Monday, Sept. 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Kelley Center McCoy Room, 300 Quaker Way.

Everyone who registers to donate can choose a t-shirt they may have missed from recent blood drive campaigns. Schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

CBC is expanding the opportunity to donate platelets and plasma at select community blood drives. Platelets are blood cells that help control bleeding. Plasma is the fluid component that helps maintain blood pressure. Both are vital to the treatment of cancer, organ transplant, burn, and trauma patients. New platelet donors are in high demand, especially those with blood types A, AB, or B-positive.
