Press Release – For Immediate Release
Grand Junction, Colorado – IntelliTec College held their quarterly blood drive on January 29, 2013. The blood drive was part of an ongoing community outreach program meant to replenish the blood bank for the recipients of the local Western Valley hospitals. IntelliTec encouraged the community to come out and save a life while also gaining a sense of fulfillment and self worth.
Donors were able to find out their blood type, have their vitals done and receive a cookie and juice for their donation. Medical Instructor Kelly Harrison explains that donors also enjoyed “a feeling of satisfaction to know they were helping to save lives, and that the life they save might just be their own or one of their family members.”
January is National Blood Donor Month, which makes this quarter’s drive especially relevant. The blood drive is a quarterly event run by the IntelliTec College Medical Department and supported by St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center. The next blood drives are April 23, July 23 and October. This event has been going on for at least three years at IntelliTec College’s Grand Junction campus and will continue to support patients of Western Valley hospitals for years to come.
One pint of donated blood can be used to help three to five lives! More information about blood drives and other community outreach events from IntelliTec can be found on posters throughout the community, around campus and in the IntelliTec College – Grand Junction newsletter.
