The time has come again for BCRC’s annual Dr. Charles Drew Blood Drive! Again this year we will be having a Bar-B-Que for our donors.
BCRC’s Dr. Charles Drew Blood Drive arose out of a shared need with Héma-Québec to increase the number of blood donations from the black community. The black community faces shortages with the growing number of Sickle-Cell, kidney disease, and other conditions requiring blood and tissue matching. BCRC agreed to partner with Héma-Québec to encourage blacks to give for their community’s needs. Events like this help promote engagement and involvement in these communities. Our goal is to acquire over 100 donors this year.
Please come, bring a friend and give 15 minutes to save someone’s life by giving blood.
