Upper Darby, PA – Students at the Harris School of Business in Upper Darby, PA are busy training for new careers as medical assistants or dental assistants. But they are not too busy to take a moment to show that they care for others. Last week, over 45 students registered to donate blood at the American Red Cross blood drive, donating a total of 29 pints by the end of the day! This amount exceeded the original goal of 23 pints, making the blood drive a huge success.

The Harris School wishes to thank everyone who donated. Giving blood can truly help to save a life. In addition, the contribution of Harris students and staff helps to bolster the reputation of our school as a school that cares about its community.  This willingness to help does not go unnoticed. The Harris School greatly appreciates it!

The American Red Cross holds blood drives at many of the Harris School campuses, located in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey. Because the Harris School’s career training programs are in the field of allied health, the partnership with a healthcare agency like the Red Cross makes sense. The Harris School and its students are committed to improving the health of others, and donating blood is one great way to show it.

Remember, you don’t have to wait for a blood drive to come to your school in order to donate blood. You may contact the Red Cross at any time to learn about where you can donate blood at their blood donation website. There is a zip code locator that allows you to find a donation center near you. If you haven’t already done so, why not consider becoming a blood donor today?
