Raintree Blood Drive

MARCH 3 (2:00 – 7:00 PM) OR MARCH 4 (8:00AM – 1:00 PM)

Dear Raintree Staff & Families,

Our next blood drive is scheduled on the Red Cross website. We are trying something new and I hope it will help us get the maximum number of life-saving donations. Look for the Blood Mobile to be parked in the Raintree parking lot on March 3, 2020 from 2 PM to 7 PM and March 4, 2020 from 8 AM to 1 PM and take advantage of having childcare while you donate. (Please note for March 3rd, Raintree still closes normally at 5:30 PM, so schedule your donation accordingly.)

The easiest way to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT is to call 800-RED-CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org . Use zip code 66047 to find our blood drive. If you have questions, or problems with the sign-up process, please contact me, Diana Perry, at DianaLPerry@yahoo.com or 785-338-6155. On the day of the drive, allow at least an hour from start to finish. Be sure to eat well, drink lots of water, and bring a photo ID.

If you are 16 years old or older and weigh more than 110 pounds, please consider being a donor.

First time donating? No problem… happy to talk to you about the process if you have questions.

Been unable to donate in the past? You might be eligible now!

Looking to donate less frequently but have a big impact? We also have lots of spaces for Power Red donations, which differ from regular blood donations by collecting only red blood cells. It can take a bit longer to donate, but it can impact more people with one donation. Donors with O-, O+, A-, or B- are encouraged to donate (but your blood can be tested immediately if you do not know your type). Men must be at least 5’1”, 130 lbs and women must be at least 5’5” and 150 lbs.

I have my donation time set up. Please come join me!

Thank you so much,

Diana Perry
