Exciting news about this week’s community blood drive!

1 Jun

blood-driveLots of great news to report about this week’s annual Webster Community Blood Drive, Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 7 p.m. at the Webster Recreation Center.

As I mentioned in a blog a few days ago, this week’s drive is going to look a lot different. Normally for this drive, several Webster small business owners donate raffle prizes for blood donors. But of course, business owners are clearly in no position to donate prizes right now, so the drive’s organizers didn’t even ask them to do so.

But that didn’t stop the generous folks at Bruster’s. They STILL want to hand out free ice cream cones to each and every donor who comes to the drive. So if you’re signed up, make sure to grab your coupon!

And if you’re not signed up, better do so soon. Word from the Red Cross is that every one of Wednesday’s 105 appointments has been booked, and as of this blog only 40 or so appointments are left for Thursday. Make your appointment by visiting  RedCrossBlood.org and search for the sponsor code “WebsterCommunity,” or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.  (Appointments will be required.)

AND REMEMBER, this year all donors are being asked to help support our small webster hotsbusiness owners by purchasing gift certificates and bringing them along to the drive. All gift certificates and any cash donations will be handed over to our local first responders to thank them for all they do.

Donation boxes will be set up outside the Recreation Center during the entire two-day drive, so even those who are unable to donate blood for any reason can still drive by and drop off their donations. Organizers will also have posters at the drop-off site, where people can write their personal messages of appreciation.

Checks may be made out to North East Quadrant Advanced Life Support, the Webster Volunteer Fire Dept., Inc., or the West Webster Volunteer Firemen’s Association.

This year’s Webster Community Blood Drive is scheduled for Wednesday June 3 and Thursday June 4, from noon to 7 p.m. at the Webster Recreation Center, 1350 Chiyoda Drive. 

For more information, you can also call Monroe County Legislator Matthew Terp at (585) 753-1922.
