Red Cross Blood Drives
Every day the Red Cross must collect nearly 13,000 blood donations for patients in need. Through a partnership to support this effort, the American Red Cross Bus or “Bloodmobile” visits Chapel Hill several times each year.
Good things happen when you donate blood. Your contribution may give more life to kids fighting cancer, older adults battling chronic illnesses or accident victims with traumatic injuries. Your blood donation can bring help and hope during patient emergencies and save up to three lives! Do you know someone who has never donated before? Invite them to make an appointment with you!
The Red Cross Bus visits Chapel Hill on Sundays from 8:30-12:30 about four times each year. Upcoming Red Cross blood drives are scheduled on June 24, August 26 and November 4.
Scheduling your donation
To schedule an appointment to donate, email Stan Greer at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter Sponsor Code “Chapel Hill Wichita.” Save time before your donation appointment by completing paperwork online using RapidPass. Complete your RapidPass on a mobile device with the FREE Red Cross Blood Donor App! Text “BLOODAPP” to 90999 or download it from the App Store or the Google Play store today!
You may also sign up before or after worship in Fellowship Hall in the weeks immediately prior to the blood drive. Even if you don’t have an appointment beforehand and still want to check, it’s always worth it to stop by the bus to see if they are taking walk-ins. If there is room on the schedule, they may be able to accommodate you.
Tip: To help ensure a pleasant and successful donation experience, please drink an extra 16 ounces of water and fluids before donating, and be sure to get a good night’s sleep before-hand.
Give blood and help save lives. As Stan Greer says, “Jesus was the original blood donor. Give blood and be like Jesus.”
