The next Lake Heritage blood drive is scheduled for Monday, January 8th from 12:30 until 6:00 at the Community center sponsored by the Lake Heritage Women’s club. There are still many spaces open, all day long, so please send me a reply with your favorite time and I will make an appointment for you. Or you can just stop by the clubhouse on Monday, January 8, whenever it is convenient for you, but there may be a bit of a wait without an appointment. The instructions for Rapid Pass are below – this is optional, it speeds up your time at the drive a bit. Also, if you know someone who might consider giving, please invite them along.
Thanks for all your support and best wishes for a Happy and Healthy Holiday.
The Red Cross really appreciates your commitment to helping provide blood for those in need. Donations are the only source of blood – science has not yet been able to manufacture artificial blood.
The Red Cross is pleased to announce RapidPass, a new tool that allows blood donors to help save lives in less time. The blood donors at your blood drive can take advantage of this exciting new tool.
RapidPass allows your donors to complete their pre-reading and donation questions online from the comfort and privacy of their home or office; reducing the time they spend at the blood drive by up to 15 minutes. That means happier donors!
It’s simple! Your donors just:
- Visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass
- Read the information
- Answer the questions
- Print the pass or email it to themselves
Important to know! RapidPass cannot be completed prior to the date of the drive. Donors must complete the steps to redeem their pass on the day they donate. Donors who do not bring the printed pass with them to their donation or cannot show it on a mobile device will be asked to complete the questions again. RapidPass does not take the place of scheduling an appointment. Please encourage your donors to schedule their appointments in the same way they have done in the past.
