The COVID pandemic continues to have a negative impact on blood donations, even as life in general starts to appear a bit more normal. The arrival of summer is making matters worse as more and more people are away and busy with seasonal activities.
The Emanuel Lutheran Church in Pleasantville hopes to help by sponsoring a Blood Drive on Thursday, August 12, 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.
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):
