"Owens Community College is extremely pleased to be involved in such a beneficial endeavor with the American Red Cross," said Stefanie Orians, Owens receptionist for Enrollment Services and coordinator of the Findlay-area Campus Blood Drive. "The need for individuals to donate blood is greater than ever."
