Help Children in Need! Donate Your Blood in November
Meadows residents always step up when it comes to helping others out. So it only makes sense that the community is hosting a special blood drive to help Children’s Hospital Colorado Blood Donor Center. Thousands of kids need blood and blood transfusions. So on Thursday, November 4th, you can help by donating your blood during the Meadows Neighborhood Company Children’s Colorado Blood Drive at The Grange.
Let’s Meet a Goal!
To meet the hospital’s surgery and transfusion goals, they need 28 people to register to hop on the mobile bus and donate their blood. You can register for your time slot here.

Of course, we’re still fighting COVID-19, so if you’re experiencing any symptoms, please sit this one out and wait for the next blood drive.
Just as a reminder, you’ll need to bring and wear your mask while you’re on the bus and giving blood.
If you can help donate, your donation will help a child and their family who desperately need a life-saving blood donation.
