Help Save a Child’s Life: Join The Blood Drive at The Grange

Blood Drive at The Grange - The Meadows Castle Rock CO

Take 45 Minutes to Help Kids on Monday, May 8th: 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 Monday, May 8th, 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 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 blood drive process, including paperwork, only takes between 30 and 45 minutes. There are still plenty of spots 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.
