Barefoot Caring Council Blood Drive

JUNE 1, 2019

~ Linda Ort

The Barefoot Caring Council is sponsoring its next American Red Cross Blood Drive on June 25, 2019, at the Barefoot Resort Golf Clubhouse! Online registration is now open! Make Your Appointment Today!

Below is the Blood Drive information, including how to make your appointment for June 25. If you have questions about your eligibility to donate, please refer to the information on www.redcrossblood.org.

An appointment helps the Red Cross with the scheduling and staffing of the Blood Mobile PLUS an appointment makes it easier and quicker for you to donate blood. Upon arrival for your appointment, you must complete the necessary background information before you can donate. However, this step can be eliminated by completing and printing the same information on the Red Cross Rapid Pass page found on line at www.redcrossblood.org.

The Red Cross is still experiencing a critical shortage of blood. They have not fully recovered from Hurricane Florence, and they project it to get even worse with the tourist season approaching. So, please consider donating!

Walk-ins are welcome but donors with appointments are given priority. FYI, the Blood Mobile will be parked in the right parking lot as you enter the golf club. Please check in with one of the volunteers upon arrival.

If you have questions, please contact Maureen O’Callaghan at mshamrockoc@verizon.net or 856-220-0086 or Linda Ort at lindaort0513@gmail.com or 443-528-4708.
