We are heading toward our next big milestone—saving as many as 10,000 lives since 2008! We are working toward collecting a total of 349 units of blood at our blood drives in July and October 2017. If we can reach that goal, we will have collected enough blood to have helped as many as 10,000 patients spend more time with their families! Would you like to help? Schedule your appointment to join us in July, and mark your calendar for our drive on October 9 & 10 at Lankenau Medical Center!

Registration is now available for our summer blood drive, which will take place on July 12, 2017 at The Reserve at Gwynedd in Lansdale, PA. 

We look forward to seeing you at our 5th annual blood drive at The Reserve at Gwynedd! Everyone who comes to donate will receive a gift bag, special refreshments, and free entry into prize drawings!

Please note: In order to be eligible to donate blood on July 12, your last prior whole blood donation must have been made no later than May 17, 2017. If your last donation was a power red (double red cell) donation, it must have been made no later than March 22. This means that if you donated whole blood with us on May 9, you WILL BE ELIGIBLE to donate with us again on July 12. If you made a power red donation at our blood drive in May, you will become eligible to donate blood again in late August.

The Carol H. Axelrod Memorial Blood Drive was created as a way of “giving back” to the blood-donor community that made it possible for Carol to receive all of the blood and platelet transfusion she needed during her treatment for cancer. Our mission is to help other patients and their families spend more time together by doing our part to ensure that blood products are always available for those who need them. Our goal is to help the blood donors at our drives have an enjoyable and positive donation experience.

If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive information about upcoming dates and locations for the Carol H. Axelrod Memorial Blood Drive, simply send an email to info@chablooddrive.org.
