PASCO, WA - Columbia Basin College needs your help in a blood drive challenge against more than 300 universities and colleges throughout the country!

It started Monday but you can also donate blood for the 2014 National Cesar Chavez Blood Drive Challenge Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

The CBC Latino Leadership Club is presenting the event to not only promote health education in the Hispanic community but to save lives too!

"Sometimes people might die because there's not enough of their blood type available," says Aimee Calderon, one of the organizers of the blood drive  "It's important for not only Hispanics but as well as the community to come out and learn a little bit more about the blood donating process and see how important it is."

Walk-ins are welcome, but you're better off calling and making an appointment to get a spot.

To make an appointment, either email ascbc5@columbiabasin.edu or call (509) 591-7839.
