One of the youth residing at the Nia Sage Group Home is currently working to organize a blood drive with the American Red Cross scheduled for August 8th. The blood drive will be held at Bristol Baptist Church, 43 School Street, Bristol, CT 06010 from 9a-2p; this is her family’s local church. The youth is working to organize this drive as part of a scholarship program with the American Red Cross. She needs 45 people to attend the drive in order to be placed in a pool to win some scholarship money toward future schooling through the Red Cross. She sought out this opportunity on her own and hopes to pursue a career in the nursing field. She earned a 3.66 GPA her last semester in the 11th grade at Manchester Regional Academy. We hope that you are able to come out and support this Nia Sage youth at the community blood drive she has organized.
