 AMerican Red Cross

A-B Tech Madison Site is hosting a Blood Drive

Tuesday, August 26th, from 11:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  

Each day the American Red Cross needs 15,000 blood donations to meet the needs of patients at approximately 27,000 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country.  With schools and families on vacations during the summer, it is difficult to collect enough blood to meet patient needs.  Here near the end of the summer, blood supplies are especially low. 

Choose August 26th as your day to donate blood and give hope to patients in need!  Appointments are scheduled at 15 minute intervals (i.e., 11:30, 11:45, 12:00, etc.), with two donor slots available for each time.   Check-in will be held in our lobby.  As always, ARC will be providing light snacks and drinks for donors, and will also be presenting donors with a coupon for $2.50 off the purchase of a 48 oz. container of Turkey Hill All Natural Ice Cream.

To schedule a time to donate, please call us at 828-649-2947. Registration and scheduling may also be done online at A-B Tech Madison blood drive

With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, the American Red Cross is depending on donors like you to help ensure blood is available when it is needed.  This is our opportunity as a community to help support the American Red Cross as they work to aid patients in need!
