Kellogg Community College’s Student Life office is hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on campus this week in Battle Creek.

The event will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Thursday, March 2, in the lobby of the Binda Performing Arts Center, on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek. Members of the public in addition to KCC students and employees are encouraged to donate.
