Remington College Shreveport Campus to hold blood drive

Minority donors needed for Dec. 17 blood drive

Remington College continues its 3 Lives effort to recruit minority blood donors and help supply local hospitals with blood. 3 Lives is a national effort held in partnership with America's Blood Centers and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America. The effort has resulted in more than 8,200 pints of blood collected since the program began.

The goal for 2013 is to pass the 10,000 pint mark!

The event will be Tuesday, Dec. 17, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4:30-6 p.m. at the Remington College Shreveport Campus, located at 2106 Bert Kouns Industrial Loop.

Singer A.J. Green, spokesperson for the 3 Lives campaign, has been battling sickle cell disease for most of his life and requires monthly blood transfusions.

"There are tens of thousands of people like me who require regular donations as part of our treatment," said Green. "My goal is to get more people of color to become regular blood donors and help save lives."

While the primary goal of the 3 Lives campaign is to recruit minority donors, everyone is encouraged to donate blood. All the blood collected will be used to help people in the Shreveport area.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
