Bone Marrow Donor Registration Drive

As part of our community service efforts this quarter, Crown College, College Nine and College Ten are partnering with DKMS ( to add people to the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) Registry.

Students, staff, faculty and members of the public are invited to register as potential bone marrow donors. The testing process is extremely simple - swabbing the inside of the cheek with a q-tip. If a registrant is identified as a potential match he or she can still choose not to be a donor. Donating is generally as simple as giving blood.

It will be held Friday, January 20th , 2012  from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Namaste Lounge at College Nine & Red Room at College Eight. Stop by and maybe save a life.

Registering is free, but donations for the DKMS bone marrow donor center will be accepted.

For more information about registering go to or call 831-459-2101.
