The next CJCA Red Cross Blood drive will be on Sunday, June 3 from 10 – 4 pm at the Clara Barton Community Center. Please email Karen Melchar (contact us) with a time slot (for example, 11:15, 11:30, 11:45 etc.) that works best for your schedule. If you have questions about your eligibility, please check the Red Cross website (www.redcross.org) for more information.
Students can give blood at age 16 with parent’s permission, and at age 17 on their own. This is an important community service, and it can’t get more convenient than having the Red Cross come to the neighborhood.
Our community is responsible for donating more than 1400 pints of blood in the past 10 years. We count on our loyal donors to return, but we really do need some new blood, so to speak. So please, if you are eligible to donate but haven’t done so in the past, consider joining this CJ tradition of community service. The refreshments are outstanding, and we are working with people’s cell phone numbers to be able to alert them in advance of their time slot if there is a significant backup
