The Carpenters at the Paul Simon Chicago Job Corps Center Sponsor the American Red Cross Blood Drive
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC) pre apprentice carpentry students at the Paul Simon Chicago Job Corps Center signed up students and staff for the quarterly American Red Cross Blood Drive.
The carpentry students sponsored the blood drive in honor of Mr. Glen Schwerdtmann of the UBC who has been diagnosed with leukemia. Mr. Schwerdtmann was a former UBC National Job Corps instructor. The carpentry students did a great job in signing up students and staff. Some of the students were a little scared at first, but the carpentry students encouraged their peers to give blood for a worthy cause. The blood drive takes place in our center gymnasium to give all staff and students an opportunity to participate. It was a successful event with over 100 students participating with 34 usable pints.
