April 8th Blood Drive Moves Locations
The April 8th American Red Cross Blood Drive originally scheduled to be held at the T.J. Health Pavilion has been moved to the First Christian Church in the Fellowship Hall at 1100 N. Race Street in Glasgow.
All donors will need to make an appointment to donate. Any donor that had a previous appointment at T.J Health Pavilion will need to go back to redcrossblood.org and make a new appointment under the First Christian Church location. You can also call 1-800-RED CROSS to make an appointment.
Homeplace on Green River has canceled its annual Plow Day/Spring Festival scheduled April 25. However, the September 12 Fall Heritage Festival will include many of the activities, arts and craft exhibits and sales and food vendors that were scheduled for the plow day.
Other summer events, including the everyone welcome free music jams scheduled for the third Thursday each month are still planned beginning in May if the present health issue allows. Bring your instrument and join in, or just come sit for a while and listen. Other summer/fall events at Homeplace will be published on the Homeplace Web page at www.homeplacefarmky.org
There will be a blood drive on Wednesday, March 25th from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. in the community center of the T.J. Health Pavilion located at 310 N L Rogers Wells Blvd., Glasgow.
Blood drives nationwide are being cancelled at an alarming rate, which is decreasing the nation’s blood supply. As of last week, it is estimated that 150,000 units have been lost due to cancellations. Because the need for blood never stops, T.J. Regional Health will host multiple blood drives over the next few weeks at the T.J. Health Pavilion Community Center.
We understand why people may be hesitant to come out for a blood drive, but the American Red Cross has implemented additional precautions to ensure the safety of donors and staff, including:
- Checking the temperature of staff and donors before entering a drive to make sure they are healthy
- Providing hand sanitizer for use before the drive, as well as throughout the donation process
- Spacing beds, where possible, to follow social distancing practices between blood donors, and
- Increasing enhanced disinfecting of surfaces and equipment
Please consider donating blood during this time, and encourage others to give as well. For an appointment please visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
