The American Red Cross 26th Annual Holiday Blood Drive
The annual blood drive is approaching quickly. It will be held on Thursday, December 23 at the Alliant Energy Center. The goal is to collect 560 pints of blood that day. The Holiday Blood Drive provides a fun and festive event for blood donors and volunteers. Donors can bring their children to the child care area and it is a family tradition for many people.
There will be a large crowd of blood donors, volunteers and Red Cross staff to feed. The food is all donated by many generous sponsors. The Red Cross is looking for Brownie and Girl Scout Troops volunteers to bake treats such as cookies, brownies, muffins or holiday cookies for the refreshment areas. Any quantity or type of treat will be appreciated and enjoyed. This is a fun community service project that will help the Red Cross save many lives.
