The Lewis and Clark Community College Veterans Club will host an American Red Cross blood drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, May 18, at The Old Bakery Beer Company, 400 Landmarks Blvd. in Alton.

“We are proud to be joining forces once again with the American Red Cross and The Old Bakery Beer Company on this community blood drive during this stressful time,” L&C Director of Career and Veteran Services Terry Lane said. “By taking part in this opportunity to help others, you just might save a life. Please make an effort to attend, and please share this information with your family and friends.”

To schedule an appointment, visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter Sponsor Code: LewisClark1 or call 800-RED CROSS. Walk-ins are always welcome, but scheduling an appointment online helps the Red Cross make sure they have the right number of people and supplies on hand for the drive.

Those who wish to donate can streamline their donation experience and save up to 15 minutes by visiting www.RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass to complete the pre-donation reading and health history questions. Please eat and hydrate before donating and be sure to bring a valid photo ID. Those donating must present a photo ID to give blood.

At this drive, the Red Cross will also offer sickle cell trait screening.

Anyone with questions can contact Lane at tdlane@lc.edu or at (618) 468–5500. To learn more about L&C Veterans Services, visit www.lc.edu/veterans.
