HCC to hold blood drive Jan. 20

Highline Community College’s Student Nursing Club is sponsoring a blood drive on Jan. 20 to help with the recent supply shortage.

The drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Building 2 on the main campus. It will close briefly, from 11-11:45 a.m., for lunch.

The blood supply dropped dramatically as a result of snowy weather in December and donors are needed, according to the Puget Sound Blood Center.

The blood drive is open to community members and Highline faculty, staff and students.

Those interested in donating blood can schedule an appointment through the PSBC’s Web site, www.psbc.org, or walk in without an appointment during the blood drive’s hours.

Highline’s main campus is located midway between Seattle and Tacoma at South 240th Street and Pacific Highway South (Highway 99); address: 2400 S. 240th St., Des Moines, WA 98198.
