2016 ACH Blood Drive
2016 Begins New ACH Blood Drive Schedule
ALLIANCE -- Alliance Community Hospital will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive every month during 2016.
All pre-scheduled drives will be held on the first Thursday of each month, with hours alternating between 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The first ACH blood drive of 2016 will be held on Thursday, January 7 from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in conference room 1-A of the hospital. All donors will be eligible to register for a gift basket full of goodies as well as a gift certificate for a free tax return service courtesy of HR Block located at 370 East State St.
“In 2015, we had a very successful donor year, and we hope to provide even more productive units in 2016,” said Michele Quinn, blood drive committee member and coordinator of Volunteer Services at ACH. “We are committed to our community and our patients. None of us knows when one of our loved ones will be in a situation where they are in need of blood or blood products. We want to be able to provide the services they will need.”
Donors are encouraged to go online at www.redcrossblood.org to establish their own profile. The volunteer department staff also can schedule appointments for donors. Donors must be at least 17 years of age (or 16 with parental consent), weigh no less than 110 pounds and have a valid ID with them at the time of the donation.
“We have been very fortunate to have area businesses such as HR Block support us though our sponsorship program, either by hosting a drive as a Corporate Sponsor, or by supporting our drives with wonderful give-aways and door prizes under our Business Express Sponsorship,” said Quinn.
“We welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about our sponsorship program to contact the volunteer department at the hospital by calling 330-596-7822 or 330-596-7821. This is a great way to pair up as a team to support and supply our community.”
