We just scheduled another blood drive for June 7th and June 8th! The drive will be held at Congregation Ohr Hatorah on Lavista Rd. in Toco Hill. This time we will have the option of donating blood as usual and also the option of donating just plasma! As in the past, all blood donated will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies. Please only sign up to donate plasma if you have have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months.
Wow! Over 200 more blood donors this past Monday and Tuesday! For a total of over 400 donors so far! We don’t have any dates finalized for the next blood drive. If you would like to organize one in your organization or neighborhood, please be in touch with us and we will put it together. In the meantime, submit your email stay updated on future drives. Thanks everyone from coming out!!
Our June 2nd drive is nearing 100 people! So the blood bank agreed to start the blood drive a day earlier – Monday, June 1st! Registration for both days is open, but if you want a Tuesday slot, grab it fast!
With such an overwhelming community response, we now have another drive for June 2nd, this time in Dunwoody at Congregation Ariel, 5237 Tilly Mill Rd. from 12:00 – 7:30 PM. Registration is now open.
What an unbelievable two days! Around 250 units of blood were donated! That is about 750 lives that can potentially be saved. And this doesn’t even include any convalescent plasma that might have a high enough antibody count and will be able to be used for COVID patients, nor future plasma donations based off of the tests that will be preformed on the blood collected over these past two days.
With such an overwhelming community response, we are working on another drive for June 2nd and this time in Dunwoody! So please check back here over the next few days for details and sign up info for that one. In addition, submit your email below and we will let you know when registration for the next drive is open.
Due to our amazing community’s quick response all 120 slots that had originally been slated for Monday were taken within 6 hours of the drive going public! In response we are extending the drive into Tuesday! You can now sign up to donate by clicking on the link above. (Originally, the blood bank said that they can add 40 more slots for Monday, but they just got back to me saying that due to social distancing concerns and personnel availability they decided it wasn’t a good idea. So Monday’s registration is officially closed.)
Due to our amazing community’s quick response all slots that have originally slated for Monday are already taken. We have added 40 more spots opening for Monday, but they are not yet on available on the registration page. In addition, we have extended the drive through Tuesday. So please check back if only Monday works for you. You can also submit your email using the form below and we will send out an email when the extra slots have been added.
Due to our amazing community’s quick response all slots that have originally slated for Monday are already taken. We are getting more personnel and there will soon be 40 more spots opening for Monday. In addition, we will be extending the drive through Tuesday as well. It will take a while, however, for us to have that registration form available. It scheduled to be ready on Thursday morning so please check back then. You can also sign up for our emailing list using the form below and we will send out an email when the extra slots have been added.
When you click to register, you will see that we only have a few slots left. But we are working on getting more personnel in order to open up more slots and to possibly expand the hours. So if the available spots don’t work for you, please try again in a couple of hours.
