Blood Drive

The annual “Rita Gillespie Memorial Blood Drive” will be held at the Beaver Island Community School on Thursday, August 7 from 12 noon until 6 pm by the American Red Cross Blood Services. Since last year at this time, hospitals are using 8% more blood than a year ago. With the summer months, the need to collect our goal on each drive is critical. Our goal this year is 80 units. The demand for blood increases in the summer as more people travel and are involved in life-threatening accidents. And the supply decreases as many donors are away from home on vacation. Later in July you will be called by one of the volunteers if you have been a previous donor to the Beaver Island drive. If you have donated elsewhere or wish to donate for the first time, call one of the coordinators for an appointment: Connie Wojan, 448-2379, Jeanne Howell 448-2241, or Jerry Charbeneau, 448-2296.

eBDR is here! An electronic Blood Donation Record will be completed by the Red Cross Collections staff leading up to your donation. Automation will make record-keeping more efficient, reduce opportunities for error, and best of all, better serve the volunteer blood donors.

Should you have any medical questions regarding donating, including travel areas abroad, you may speak to a Red Cross nurse by calling 800-968-4283, ext. 344, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am-4:30 pm. Give another chance: Give Blood! Together we can save a life.
