Event Type: Adults|
Start Time: 8:00 AM
End Time: 1:00 PM
Please join the Downingtown Library and the Red Cross at a blood drive at the Downingtown Library. Giving blood is especially important at this time, since there is a critical nation-wide shortage of blood! The Red Cross has over 135 years of experience providing humanitarian aid, including more than 75 years of supplying blood to those in need. Each pint of blood we collect can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives of so many more. What a great way to pay it forward and make an impact on people in our community and across the country!Library: Downingtown Library
