Help meet the critical need for blood.
With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.
Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.
The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood.
Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone, and is often used to treat trauma patients.
The need is constant.
The gratification is instant.
A blood drive is scheduled for Tuesday, May 5, 1pm - 6pm at Covenant Presbyterian Church. We will be thanking donors with a Cinco de Mayo inspired menu. We are pleased to co-sponsor this event with The Master's School and the Simsbury Chamber of Commerce.
