Sign up in Clubhouse for 2nd Annual Blood Drive on July 2

Time for Timber Valley’s 2nd Annual Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, July 2, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in the large Meeting Room of the Clubhouse.

As with last year, each donor must sign up for a specific time. Look for the sign-up sheet on the sign-up table in the Clubhouse dinning room.

The American Red Cross currently has an urgent need for blood donors of all blood types. During this uncertain time, the Red Cross encourages healthy, eligible individuals to give blood to help replenish the blood supply. This is the time to take care of one another, and blood donation is essential to ensuring the health of those in our community.

    I received a card from Red Cross and our location was listed as a place to donate along with several other location. Is this open to the public?

  2. Yes. Last year we had about three walk-ins from the community.
