Tidewater Community College will sponsor a blood drive on all four of its campuses on Sept. 11 in remembrance of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania.

The blood drive is open to the general public, and students, faculty and staff of TCC are encouraged to participate.
 
Facilitated by the American Red Cross, the drive will boost local supplies, ensuring blood is available for those who need it in Hampton Roads. Eligibility requirements and tips for those who have never given blood can be found at http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood.
 
To schedule an appointment, visit www.redcrossblood.org/make-donation and enter sponsor code TCC911. Walk-ins are also welcome.
