Help Save a Child’s Life: Join The Blood Drive at The Grange
Take 45 Minutes on Tuesday, April 5th to Help Kids: Children’s Hospital Mobile Blood Drive At The Grange
We have a lot of fun events here in The Meadows in Castle Rock CO, but we also have plenty of events that support good causes. There’s nothing better than helping kids in need — that’s what’s happening on Tuesday, April 5th during the Children’s Hospital Mobile Blood Drive at The Grange from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
A Gift that Makes an Incredible Difference
I can’t imagine what it’s like for families whose children have life-threatening diseases or traumatic injuries that require life-saving surgery. The blood donated during this mobile blood drive at the Grange will go to help those children and families — doctors at Children’s Hospital of Colorado will use your blood to help kids who need surgery or blood transfusions.
Just 30-45 Minutes to Help a Life
Don’t worry about having time — you have it. The whole blood drive process including paperwork only takes between 30 and 45 minutes. There are still plenty of spots open for you to donate blood so you can choose a time that is convenient for you, between 8:30 a.m and 12:15 p.m. at the mobile blood drive center which will be parked at The Grange. Don’t forget to wear your mask while on the bus.
