You’re invited to bless the Greater Lafayette community through a Blood Drive, provided by the American Red Cross!
The Covid-19 virus has slowed down blood donations tremendously, so the American Red Cross is excited to offer blood drives again to meet this urgent need. The American Red Cross has worked hard to put measures in place to keep donors and employees safe, as they collect blood donations this summer. More details on those precautions are provided at the bottom of the page. We’re thrilled to partner with the Red Cross as we rally with the Greater Lafayette community in this exciting way!
TIME: 11:00AM – 4:00PM
LOCATION: Sunrise Church (909 E 500 S, Lafayette) –
In the Gymnasium
HOW TO SIGN UP: Pre-registration is highly encouraged. Please go to redcrossblood.org and search our zip code, 47909, in the “Find a Blood Drive” search box in the upper right hand side of the page. After doing that, scroll down the list on the left hand side of the page and you’ll find our blood drive: “Sunrise Christian Reformed Church”. Click on our name, select a time and take just a few minutes to create an account and confirm your appointment. Pre-registering will help keep us organized, so we thank you for your efforts to do so. Walk-ins on the day of the event are also accepted, but there may no longer be slots available.
Blood Drive Safety Strategies:
- All nurses will be wearing masks and gloves.
- All blood donors will be required to wear a mask. If you do not have one the day of the event, one will be provided for you.
- All blood donors will also be required to have their temperature checked to ensure safety for all involved.
- Appointments are spread further apart, so as to have less people in the building at a time.
