52nd Blood Drive • Over 1,600 Units of Blood to date

Thank you all for donating!

We now have Sunday Drives as well - once a quarter.

I am pleased to announce the results from both of our Blood Drives that were held during 2021 -over 215 pints so far

I want to thank all of you for for taking the time out of your busy schedules to help our community.  

History on our Blood Drive...Began on December 8, 2007.  Since then, we have sponsored over 92 blood drives with more than 2,000 pints of blood donated to the community. 

A big THANK YOU goes out to all of you that have helped make this a very successful event! At this time, I would also like to thank all the Elk volunteers that help make these quarterly drives happen... 

Sincerely,

Alicia Ferrando

Blood Drive Coordinator
