With the advent of the new omicron variant, the COVID pandemic continues to have a negative impact on blood donations as our traditionally biggest sponsors of blood drives (schools, businesses) are facing possible closures. The arrival of winter is making matters worse as seasonal colds and flu are also preventing people from donating.
The Emanuel Lutheran Church in Pleasantville hopes to help by sponsoring a Community Blood Drive on Monday, January 31, 2022, from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the church on 197 Manville Road, Pleasantville. Both whole blood and red cells units will be collected from qualifying candidates. Although this drive makes it convenient for Pleasantville residents to participate, blood donors from all towns are welcome to come to lend their help.
All persons donating from Jan. 1 to Jan. 31, 2022, will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a Mirror Home Gym.
Donors will be required to wear a mask. To allow for sufficient social distancing, APPOINTMENTS are PREFERRED and STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. Walk-ins will be accepted if and when distancing requirements can be followed.
For questions regarding eligibility (travel, medications, last donation, etc):
