Red Cross Blood Drive at New Canaan Library; Fines Waived for Donors
December 5, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Often, blood donations fall off during the holiday season; to address that, the Red Cross returns to New Canaan Library for a blood drive on Wednesday, December 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. To support participation the Library will, on that day, waive any existing overdue fines for the presenting blood donor.
There are many reasons to donate blood; from knowing that you might need blood one day to just believing it’s the right thing to do. The need to maintain a reliable blood supply is constant and vital; by donating you are helping to change, and perhaps save, a life.
To participate in this blood drive please register online at newcanaanlibrary.org. Donors must bring a positive form of ID. For a complete list of requirements and helpful tips for potential donors please contact the Red Cross Donor Client Center at 1-866-236-3276, open 24/7. Information is also available at redcrossblood.org.
