The Student Leadership Council at Ogeechee Technical College recently partnered with the American Red Cross of Southeast and Coastal Georgia to hold the second blood drive of 2023 on OTC’s campus.
The Red Cross set up in the Oak Room of the Jack Hill Building from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14 and collected 23 units of blood.
“It may seem like a small thing on the surface, but when you consider that up to three lives are saved for every unit of blood that is donated there are a lot of lives that were potentially saved by our faculty, staff, and students who chose to give blood.” said Beckie Snyder, Administrative Assistant for AVPSA.
In addition to the students from OTC’s Student Leadership Council were student volunteers from the Wildlife Club and Out to Conquer.
The next blood drive will be held August 30.
Ogeechee on the Go is the name of Ogeechee Technical College’s community service initiative. OTC students and employees routinely participate in projects designed to support worthwhile causes within the community.
