RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE Hosted by Canterbury Historical Society

07/11/2016 - 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Community Room of the Canterbury, CT Town Hall
1 Municipal Drive - Canterbury, CT 06331

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood, but donations consistently fall in the summer months. Please consider supporting our annual Red Cross blood drive, on July 11 this year.

Blood donors can make appointments by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Walk-ins are always welcome but will be worked in around scheduled appointments.

Blood donations are collected from 1:00 to 6:00 PM, and on-site volunteers work in one- or two-hour shifts from about 12:45 to 7:00 PM.

Even if you can’t be a blood donor yourself, we’d still very much appreciate your help in other ways, such as spreading the word to your family and friends, or your donation of time, fresh fruit, home-baked goods, or money to purchase snacks. Some of our repeat blood donors say they make a special point of coming to the drives we host just because of the fabulous noshes!

To volunteer your time, or to support the blood drive with donations of snacks or money for their purchase, please send an email to, or call 860-546-9266.
