American Red Cross Community Blood Drive
The American Red Cross and Ellenville Regional Hospital will join together for a community blood drive on Friday, November 3, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Ellenville Regional Hospital at 10 Healthy Way. The Red Cross blood drive will take place in a traveling donor center outside of the hospital in their parking lot.
Blood is an essential component for patient care in area hospitals, and the only source of blood is a healthy volunteer blood donor, like you.
Local blood donors are needed all year round to ensure the blood supply stays strong. Approximately every two seconds a patient in the United States needs blood. That’s why your blood donation through the Red Cross is so important. Your blood donation can help save the life of a real person in our community. It truly is the blood on the shelves today that helps save lives tomorrow.
Walk-ins are always welcome, but donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment in advance by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767), 845 647-6400 ext. 361 or by visiting redcrossblood.org. Sponsor Code: Ellenville.
