10th Annual 38th Street Blood Drive

10th Annual 38th Street Blood Drive

Posted by on Sep 4, 2018 in East Sac, Fab 40's, Volunteer | 0 comments

The amazing McAuliffe family is holding their 10th Annual Blood Drive on Monday September 17th. I’ve already booked my time for giving blood and I look forward to seeing many of my neighbors there. Below is the email they sent me because hearing about the event in their words is better than me trying to paraphrase it.   Dear Friends and Neighbors, We like to think the 38th Street Blood Drive is a party, and we hope you’ll consider joining us.  We’ll have tents and tables on the front lawn, and two bloodmobiles parked on the street.  As usual, we’ll be grilling sausages and pouring our favorite beverages. Our tenth annual Blood Drive occurs Monday, September 17  from 3:00-7:00.  To schedule an appointment, please go to bloodsource.org/drives and enter location code M597.  If you prefer, please call us at 451-5507 or email alicemcauliffe12@gmail.com with your preferred time and I’ll schedule an appointment for you.  If you have any friends who would like to donate, we’d be happy to schedule them as well.  Anyone 17 or older can donate.  Those who are 16 can donate with parental permission, using a form available on the bloodsource.org website.  Please remember to bring a photo id and drink plenty of fluids beforehand.  If you have any questions about eligibility, please call 800-995-4420 and ask for the “Nurse of the Day”.  If possible, please make an appointment so we have no gridlock and we know how many folks to expect.  We look forward to seeing you and having a good time. Year after year, you keep coming back, even on 100 degree days.  We are honored and touched that  you continue to support this very worthwhile cause.  We do this in memory of my wonderful mom, Rosemary Lonczak, who lived years longer as a result of numerous blood transfusions. Sincerely, Alice and Pat...
