The RCTC Lions Club is sponsoring a blood drive on campus on Feb. 1 and 2 in conjunction with Mayo Clinic.

Times are available from 8:30 a.m.-3:15 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 1 and Tuesday, Feb. 2 in CC412 above the cafeteria. If you’d like to sign up beforehand, you can visit this website to lock in your preferred time through Jan. 31. Otherwise, walk-in appointments will be available.

The need for blood donations is constant, and continuous donations are needed for a healthy and reliable supply of blood. One out of three people will need blood in his or her lifetime; donating blood is one of the easiest ways to help save a life.

Donors must weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old. If you are sick, you’re not able to donate. Blood donation takes about 45-60 minutes depending on how hydrated you are. For more information on what to expect and qualifications for donating blood, check out Mayo Clinic’s website.
