Get Swag at Member Blood Drive – February 2019

2019 Blood Drive - February

On Sunday, February 17th, the American Red Cross will bring their mobile blood donation unit to our General Membership meeting. They’ll be parked outside from 11am until 4pm, collecting blood from qualified members, family, and friends. People who donate will get some cool Local 479 swag – a fleece cap or a scarf!

It takes less than 20 minutes to make an enormous difference!

Every pint donated can help up to three people, ranging from premature infants and trauma patients to cancer patients and people having elective surgeries.
