Manatee Tech will hold a 9/11 blood drive at the Main Campus 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, September 10 and 11. The goal of the blood drive is to provide a positive way for everyone to pay tribute to the 9/11 victims and honor those who rose up in service. “Each donation saves three lives,” said Kelly Ewing. Ewing is an instructor and SkillsUSA advisor in Marine Service Technology at Manatee Tech. Each person who donates will receive a “Never Forget” t-shirt with an artist’s rendition of the twin towers in the colors of the U.S. flag. MTI Main is located at 6305 State Road 70 East in front of Braden River High School. For more information on the blood drive, contact Ewing at 751-7900, ext. 1107 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
