“We began our monthly blood drive schedule in May of this year,†said Becky Wilson, Lab co-manager at ACH.  “Each ACH drive has grown, and we have surpassed our goal each month as well.  We are excited at the wonderful response from our hospital Colleagues and the community.â€

 

A new dimension has also been added to the program, which includes different sponsorship opportunities; open to businesses and corporations, as well as not-for-profit organizations.

 

 â€œWe have had a very good response from area businesses and civic organizations as we reach out to broaden our donor base,†said Wilson. “We offer incentives to these entities, as we form productive partnerships and are happy to talk to anyone who is interested in supporting our blood drives in this manner.â€

 

The upcoming blood drive will be held from 7 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. in conference room 1-A, located off of the Café on the first floor of the hospital.

 

“With our new e-donor scheduling program, our donors now have the benefit of scheduling their own appointments online,†said Marcy Todd, volunteer coordinator at ACH. “We feel this option has made a big difference in the increased number of donors.â€

 

According to Todd, to schedule an appointment online, potential donors can go to the Red Cross's Web site, www.givelife.org.

 

Those interested donating blood can also schedule an appointment by contacting the Volunteer Services Department at 330-596-7822 or 330-596-7821.
