Cierra Crowe, a Register teen, has learned a valuable lesson in the art of giving.“I was searching for scholarship opportunities online last spring and found the American Red Cross BloodStock scholarship,” Crowe said. “I decided to participate in the BloodStock scholarship because I enjoy planning and organizing events, especially those that benefit others.”“Of course, the most important reason to donate blood is to help save lives,” she continued. “There is always a need for blood, but there is a much higher demand during the summer months.”Crowe was given the opportunity of organizing her blood drive at her home church, Statesboro First Baptist.
