NYBloodCenter-Assembly-3Press release from Red Bank Charter School

As part of an ongoing commitment to service learning, Red Bank Charter School (RBCS) will host a community blood drive on Friday, May 1. Scheduled for the hours of 2 pm to 6:30 pm, the effort is a partnership with the Little Doctors Program of the New York Blood Center, serving tri-state area hospitals.

RBCS Student Ambassadors will assist in the day, with a goal of collecting 30 pints, which can help as many as 90 patients. Fun and educational activities are planned for those who are too young to donate, and the Lakewood BlueClaws will honor RBCS at a spring home game for service learning activities and sponsorship of the blood drive.

A single donation of blood has the impact to save several lives, and collective efforts in a single day can support the critical needs of many in our surrounding area. RBCS families, faculty, staff, community members and media guests are invited to the school building at 58 Oakland Street in Red Bank between the hours of 2 and 6:30 pm on May 1, to be part of this life-saving community effort. Call (732)540-2092 for additional information on the blood drive event, and go here for more about the Little Doctors Program.
