Pine Haven Christian Communities will once again partner with the American Red Cross to hold their biannual blood drive on July 13th. This event will take place from 1pm to 6pm in the Community Center at their Haven Drive campus.
While some view Friday the 13th as being unlucky, by donating blood, you will be helping to make someone have a very lucky day: by helping to save their life. Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross. Donations of blood typically decrease during busy summer months, so healthy, eligible donors are urged to give now. This event provides an easily accessible and comfortable environment for people to participate.
The drive is scheduled to run from 1pm until 6pm, and while walk-ins are welcome, you can reduce waiting time if you sign up ahead of time to donate. There are three ways those interested in donating can schedule their donation appointment: 1) by visiting https://www.redcrossblood.org. Enter the Sponsor Code “Pine Haven” in the blue box in the upper right corner of the page, select the drive and sign up for a slot. 2) Call the Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to schedule a time. 3) Contact Karin Oliver-Kreft at Pine Haven Christian Communities at 920-550-5227 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is the fourth blood drive at Pine Haven, and is part of Pine Haven’s Public Happenings program that provides events and/or educational sessions once a month, designed to benefit our community.
