Please Join Us and Give Blood at MacDowell on March 10th!
MacDowell Montessori School and the American Red Cross are hosting a blood drive this spring. We are calling on students, families, staff, and our entire community to join us! Please join our lifesaving mission and schedule an appointment today.
Click here to make your appointment!
You may also call/text our local Red Cross contact with questions about donating blood: 262-200-1198. Individuals who are 16 years of age or older, in general good health, and weigh at least 110 lbs. are eligible to give blood. Click here for additional eligibility info. Below is the blood drive information –
Friday, March 10, 2023
8:30 AM – 2:00 PM
The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 seconds. Most of us will need blood in our lifetime – 1 in 7 patients entering the hospital will need a transfusion, but only 3% of the US population donates blood. Let’s roll up our sleeves and turn that statistic around!
By donating at our blood drive, you are helping a graduating senior earn a scholarship. Plus, all attempting donors will receive a $20 Amazon gift card, via email.
Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program! We hope to see you soon!
