Donate blood at EvCC April 9-10

EVERETT — The Everett Community College Student Activities Health & Wellness Program and the Puget Sound Blood Center are teaming up to conduct a blood drive at EvCC April 9-10, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in EvCC's Henry M. Jackson Center Wilderness Auditorium.

To make an appointment to donate, sign up at Student Activities in Parks Hall, Room 209, or call Student Activities at 425-388-9561. Walk-in donors are also welcome.

Every two seconds someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion, but only 5 percent of the eligible population donates blood in a given year, according to the American Red Cross.

Everett Community College, located at 2000 Tower St., is two blocks west of North Broadway, between 10th and Tower streets.
