We are heading toward our next big milestone—saving as many as 10,000 lives since 2008! We are working to collect 225 units of blood at our blood drive in October 2017. If we can reach that goal, we will have collected enough blood since 2008 to have helped as many as 10,000 patients spend more time with their families! Would you like to help?

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.
