MCC Campuses Host American Red Cross Blood Drives

MCC students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to give the gift of life at three on-campus blood donations this month. As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Red Cross is asking donors to assist in the fight against all cancers by donating blood. Cancer treatments often involve aggressive use of potent drugs, and blood transfusions help replenish healthy cells lost during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

  • South Omaha Campus: Tuesday, Oct. 28, 8 a.m.-noon 
  • Fort Omaha Campus: Wednesday, Oct. 29, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. 
  • Elkhorn Valley Campus: Thursday, Oct. 30, 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

To make your appointment, use the sign-up sheet available in each of these campus’ dean’s offices. You can also call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (1-800-448-3543) or visit givebloodgivelife.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Eligible donors must be at least 17 years old, or 16 years old with a signed Red Cross parental/guardian consent form where state permits, must weigh at least 110 pounds and be in general good health.

Fight the Flu

Prevention is the best defense in fighting the flu! The Visiting Nurse Association will conduct a flu shot clinic Oct. 27 at the Elkhorn Valley Campus Commons from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. The clinic is open to faculty, staff, students and families (age 13 and above). The cost is $25 per shot, payable by cash or check; a receipt will be provided for insurance/spending account reimbursement, if authorized by that carrier. The Visiting Nurse Association will only bill traditional Medicare and not the managed Medicare programs.
