Blood Drive

Chase Center

Chase Community Center

​​There will be a blood drive from 10:30 - 3:30 in the Chase Center on Monday, January 30.


Sign up at www.redcrossblood.org or at the Barrister's Ball table in Chase Breezeway this week!​


VLS has shown its commitment to the health and safety of the community through blood drives again and again, but the need never goes away. As someone who owes my life to blood donations, I know the value of these drives firsthand. Your donation could save three lives! Let's turn out in force and help out our community. We especially need double red cell donors!


Note: The American Red Cross is in the midst of a severe blood shortage due to poor weather and canceled drives during the holiday season. For more information on the current situation, click here​. Then donate!


When is the best time to give? There are lots of spots empty in the afternoon, so if your schedule is flexible, please consider giving between 1:00 - 3:30.


How do I sign up? Go to www.redcrossblood.org and look up the VT Law drive by zip code (05068). Or see the Barrister's Ball table in Chase Breezeway this week.


What are double red cells? A Double Red Cell donation (also called a Power Red donation) collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor. These donors must meet specific eligibility requirements, but your donation is especially needed!


Advice before donating? Drink lots of water and make sure your diet has plenty of protein/iron.


What if I can't donate blood? Consider volunteering! Contact me, Elijah LaChance, and tell me when you'll be available on Monday, Jan. 30. We need volunteers all day, from setup at 9:45 am to teardown at 4:00 pm.


Consider donating snacks! All baked goods should be at the Chase Center by 9:30 am the day of the drive.
