In celebration of the World Blood Donors’ Month, the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC)-Olongapo Chapter held a mass blood letting on July 25, 2008 at the Plenary B of Olongapo City Convention Center (OCCC). One hundred thirty one (131) people from different sectors of the city donated blood.

“The theme of this year’s World Blood Donor’s month is ‘Once is not enough...give blood regularly’,” said Mitzi Quisay, OIC of PNRC-Olongapo

“PNRC-Olongapo invited Olongapeños to donate blood in order to ensure the continuous supply of safe blood for the community. Donating blood is also healthy for the body as it encourages the body to produce new red blood cell,” Quisay added.

The event was also held to show PNRC-Olongapo’s appreciation to those who regularly volunteer to donate blood. Tokens like shirts and snacks were given to those who participated in the event and donated blood.

Among those who donated blood were City Councilor Gie Baloy, personnel from the Olongapo City Police Office and Traffic Management Board, workers form Lidnberg Inc., NIDEC and SANYO-DENKI, employees from different barangays of the city, students and members of the religious group ‘Ang Dating Daan.’

Lion’s Club Peninsula, McDonald’s Olongapo and Jollibee Ulo ng Apo sponsored the event.
