Thanks to all of you who came out to attend our blood drive in July. We had a great turnout and collected 17 units of life-saving blood!
It’s time once again to sign up for the Jackson SWCD/Rogue River Watershed Council bi-monthly blood drive at 89 Alder St. in Central Point. Save the date: Wednesday, December 11th from 10:00am to 3:30pm!. Here’s where you can sign up:
1. https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/find-drive. Search by our sponsor code “JSWCD”.
2. Look for the Red Cross Blood Donor app in the Google Play or Apple App stores.
3. Contact the District at 541-423-6185, 541-423-6180, or 541-423-6167.
This will be our 12th blood drive and after a great turnout on July 23rd, we have now collected 215 units of blood!!! That’s potentially 645 lives, all because of your efforts to help others. This drive our goal is 19 units. With your help we can not only meet, but likely exceed our goal and continue to make a difference.
With the holidays fast approaching, what better gift is there to give than the gift of life? Donate and save a stranger, or snap a selfie while donating and send it to someone you may know who is still around because of a blood transfusion. Whether you’re doing it for yourself, an acquaintance, or a complete stranger, every donation counts. For those of you that have tried to donate in the past and were turned away for temporary reasons (low iron, high pulse rate, blood pressure, white-coat phobia), I encourage you to try again. Sign up for a different time slot and read up on how to prepare for your blood donation. For those of you who cannot make the drive this December 11th, I challenge you to find a proxy, someone who can donate in your place.
As always, we encourage everyone to share their home or store-bought (no judgment here) treats with our awesome donors. I’ve heard lots of great compliments from both donors and Red Cross staff that our drive has the best food. Thanks to everyone for their generous contributions in the past!
Again, please sign up for the Jackson SWCD/Rogue River Watershed Council bi-monthly blood drive at 89 Alder St. in Central Point, on Wednesday, December 11th from 10:00 to 3:30
Thank you all for your continued support of this effort. Let’s make sure we meet our goal this month!
