Red Cross Blood Drive Hosted by Canterbury Historical Society

We hope you will take part in our annual Red Cross blood drive hosted by the Canterbury Historical Society. This year's will be on Monday, July 15.

Blood donations are collected from 1:00 to 5:45 PM, but volunteers work in shifts between noon and about 7:30 or 8:00 PM.

Donor appointments can be scheduled by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Walk-ins are welcome, but donors with appointments will be taken first and the walk-ins worked in.

Please consider donating blood or helping out in other ways, such as telling your family and friends about the blood drive, or donating time, snacks, or funds for snacks.

We need volunteers to bake (we are known for our snacks!); to donate cereal bars and fresh fruit such as oranges, grapes, apples, pineapple, etc.; and to help out on-site in two-hour shifts.

To volunteer your time, or to support the blood drive with donations of snacks or money for their purchase, please send an email to

For Red Cross info about donating blood, see

Many thanks.
