The Rector Future Business Leaders of America is sponsoring a Red Cross blood drive from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. today (Thursday, April 18) at the Rector Community Center.

The event has extended hours, allowing donors to stop by the center after work or other activities. The Red Cross would like to remind potential volunteers that just one donation of blood can save as many as three lives.

In addition to saving lives by rebuilding the supply of life-giving blood, the event also has the potential to benefit Rector FBLA students. If the blood drive has at least 46 donors, RHS FBLA will receive $500 in scholarships.
