Red Cross Blood Drive - September 15th!
Join us for our bi-monthly blood drive at the Mountain Community Center on September 15th from 9 AM to 2 PM!
Saving a life is easy, and we are here, right within your community, to make it even easier. If you have never donated before, let this be your first time. It's hard to describe the mixture of nerves and pride you see on the faces of those waiting to donate with their green new donor stickers, but we love to see it, because we're thinking about how many people that person can help over the course of their lifetime. In just 20 years, a person can donate 130 pints of blood. Each pint of blood can help as many as three people.
And even if you cannot donate, for whatever reason, there are other ways to help. You can volunteer. You can help us spread the word to those who can donate. You can donate snacks and drinks.
Please, take a moment, and spread the word to as many people as possible. With your help, we can continue to make these drives a success in our area.
Appointments can be made by calling the Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS, or by visiting their website at http://www.redcrossblood.org/make-donation. Our sponsor code is Shannondale.
You can also contact me with your preferred time and I can assist you with scheduling. Thank you!
Appointments are still available for our Blood Drive, this Saturday! Walk-ins are also welcome. Join us at the MCC this Saturday to give life. Local business, River Riders, has donated a gift certificate good for two spots on their Aerial Adventure Park, which will be giving away in a drawing at the drive. Hope to see you there!
Feel free to contact me for assistance with scheduling appointments. It looks like we will have double red cell donations available at this drive, as well, which you can read about more here.

Kim - I can't donate this Saturday -- I'm working and won't be available. I'm hoping next time around I will. Thank you!!
