Donating blood is a vital way to help save lives. Along with helping save lives, there are a number of reasons why donating blood is important. A single donation can save three lives. Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person. Therefore to create awareness, NSS unit, The Pillai HOC College of Engineering and Technology in association with Shree Sai Blood Bank, Panvel conducted a Blood Donation Camp in Sawale village, Panvel, Raigad on 26th January, 2021 on the occasion of Republic Day.
