Roxboro Community School (RCS) will host a Red Cross Blood Drive on Friday, Oct. 23. It will take place from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Student coordinators Stephanie Devillier and Laney Jones are planning, organizing, and executing the drive alongside RCS volunteer coordinator Yvonne Pleasant.

“Getting involved in the blood drive is a wonderful opportunity for community service and helping save lives, since one pint donated can save up to three people,” said Devillier.

The blood drive allows students to earn community service hours by donating blood. It also shows the school’s support of the community and country.

“Having blood drives provide students with scholarship opportunities, looks good on college applications, and helps them realize the importance of donating blood. You really are a hero by doing so, because you always save someone’s life,” said Pleasant.
