WALLA WALLA --Students from Walla Walla High School's Crest Club are working with GESA Credit Union to sponsor a blood drive Friday.
The American Red Cross blood drive will be from noon-5 p.m. at GESA Credit Union, 1603 Penny Lane.
To donate blood, contact Jessica Crudup at 524-4782 for an appointment, or visit the Red Cross website at redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code GCUwalla after clicking on the Make a Blood Donation Appointment link.
About 60 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood, but only about 5 percent do so in a given year, according to a news release. A unit of blood can save the lives of three people.
