Hospital, Paulus partner for monthly blood drive
Paulus Orthodontics sponsors Alliance Community Hospital blood drive
With the season of giving just around the corner, Alliance Community Hospital (ACH) is hoping area residents will once again roll up their sleeves for a good cause.
The monthly American Red Cross blood drive at ACH is set for Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in conference room 1-A of the hospital. Historically blood donations tend to slow down during the holiday season; unfortunately the need remains the same.
Paulus Orthodontics has once again partnered with ACH and the Red Cross as the business sponsor for the drive. All donors that participate in the drive will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win an iPad mini, a Fitbit or one of six $25 gift cards to area businesses.
Dr. Mike Paulus and his staff encourage the community to give the gift of life this holiday season. "This blood drive signifies the true meaning of Christmas, and that is giving and sharing with those in need," said Brenda Miller, treatment coordinator.
Those interested in donating are encouraged to make appointments by contacting the volunteer office at ACH by calling 330-596-7821. Donors can also use their "Rapid Pass" to expedite the registration process the day of the drive. To register for a "Rapid Pass" go online to www.redcrossblood.org/rapidpass and complete the online form.
