The South County Tourism Council will co-sponsor its annual blood drive with the RI Dept. of the Attorney General and Department of Youth and Families on Wed., March 14, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Stedman Government Center, 4808 Tower Hill Rd., Wakefield.
The drive is dedicated to three-year-old Noah Fogg, whose mother works at DCYF’s North Kingstown office. Noah was diagnosed with leukemia last February and has undergone aggressive treatment and received transfusions of cells and platelets during the past year.
This is the seventh blood drive sponsored by SCTC, last year’s drive brought in the largest number of donors, 106. A retired Narragansett Police officer, also stricken with leukemia, was the designated recipient for 2011.
All blood donations will make a difference in someone’s life. A significant amount of the blood collected at RIBC blood drives go towards treating children with leukemia, automobile accident victims and patients needing organ transplants.
