HCC To Hold Blood Drive 4/17

BRIDGEPORT – Housatonic Community College, in cooperation with the American Red Cross, will hold a blood drive Thursday, April 17.

The event, sponsored by the college’s Human Services Club and the Black Student Union, will be held 11:30 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. in the Events Center in Beacon Hall.

“We want to get out into the community to give back to the community,” said Human Services Club member Robert Boback. “A blood drive is a great way to do this.”

“All the blood donated will stay in Connecticut to help people in Connecticut,” he said.

All presenting donors during the month of April will be entered into a weekly drawing for a $100 Lowe’s gift card, and also into the grand prize drawing for one of two $500 Lowe’s gift cards.

HCC is located at 900 Lafayette Blvd. in downtown Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off I-95 and Rte. 8, a block from the Harbor Yard sports complex. Free parking is available in the Housatonic Garage.
