March Blood Drive was a Huge Success

Michael and Laurie Lien

Our March blood drive had a great response from SaddleBrooke residents. There were 68 out of 69 appointments filled, making this the largest blood drive ever at SaddleBrooke. Thank you so much for making this such a successful blood drive. The next blood drive will take place on May 22 from 7 a.m. until noon at the MountainView ballroom. All precautions will remain in place, including limiting the drive to only SaddleBrooke residents by appointment only. As a blood donor, you do something extraordinary with each donation. You give families hope. You give patients courage. And you give those who need it most, life. Donors like you make all the difference. That is why your donation for this drive is more important than ever. The need for blood is constant, and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every two to three seconds, and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.

To schedule your appointment, please go to or call 800-733-2767. Also, you can start the donation process before leaving home by completing a RapidPass and health history questionnaire online from your mobile device or using the Blood Donor app on the day of your appointment. You can save up to 15 minutes. Learn more at We hope to see you all.
