American Red Cross Blood Drive at Westwood Fire Company

Feb 20, 2024 | Coatesville, Event

The American Red Cross is set to host a crucial blood drive on Thursday, March 7th at the Westwood Fire Company. The event aims to bolster blood supplies and provide lifesaving resources to those in need.

In a generous gesture, JGM has pledged to support donors by offering a $10 gift card for The Little Chef Restaurant in Coatesville. This incentive not only encourages individuals to participate in the blood drive but also rewards their altruism with a delightful treat.

It’s an opportunity to make a difference and indulge in the Coatesville cuisine. Donors can feel the satisfaction of contributing to a noble cause and then treat themselves to a delicious meal. For those looking to maximize their impact, eligible type O, B-, or A- donors are encouraged to consider making a Power Red donation. Red blood cells, the most commonly transfused blood component, can significantly aid patients in need.

To streamline the donation process and save time, donors are encouraged to visit RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass to complete pre-donation reading and health history questions on the day of their appointment. This simple step can save up to 15 minutes and ensure a smooth donation experience.

By participating in this blood drive, individuals can play a vital role in saving lives and making a positive impact on their community. Don’t miss this chance to give back and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you’ve made a difference.
