Before your Super Bowl celebrations get underway, please consider donating blood at the CJCA Red Cross Blood drive Sunday, Feb. 3rd from 10 – 4 pm. Held at the Clara Barton Community Center, our goal for this drive is 40 pints of blood.
Please email Karen Melchar (contact us) to schedule a donation time. (For example, 11:15, 11:30, 11:45 etc.) In the event that the Red Cross is running behind schedule, volunteer coordinators will send a text message with schedule updates to anyone that requests notification. 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. If you are eligible to donate but haven’t done so in the past, consider joining this Cabin John tradition of community service.
