Janney Elementary to Host Community Blood Drive

Blood DriveOn Thursday, May 22, Janney Elementary School is sponsoring a Community Blood Drive from 2:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the school gymnasium. Stop by to give blood and help save a life. Donors of all blood types are needed.

Appointments can be scheduled in advance by visiting www.redcrossblood.org and searching by Sponsor Code 05311835. Advance scheduling can minimize wait times the day of the drive; allow approximately an hour to donate blood. For questions about donor eligibility, call the American Red Cross Eligibility Hotline at 1-866-236-3276.

Donors are encouraged to get a good night’s sleep, drink plenty of water and eat a healthy meal before giving blood. And don’t forget to bring two forms of identification.
