The Glendale Chapter of National Charity League Inc. will hold its 11th annual “From the Heart” American Red Cross Blood Drive on Sunday, July 9, from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. The summer is a time when blood supplies are very low and donors are urgently needed.
Members of the community are encouraged to make an appointment to donate by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by signing up for this drive on the American Red Cross San Gabriel-Pomona Valley website. Donors are welcomed by the NCL Chapter’s mother and daughter members, and upon leaving, are thanked with a bag of homemade cookies and treats made by the Ticktockers (daughters).
“Our chapter’s blood drive is one of the most successful in the area and this year we hope once more to meet or exceed 120 blood donations, saving more than 300 lives,” said Christie Clarkson, chapter president.
Chairing the event are members Hilary Fausett, Ellen Portantino and Penny Rajewski. For more information on the campaign, or to learn more about NCL Inc, Glendale Chapter membership, visit nclglendale.org and complete the online interest form on the Get Involved page.
