We are organizing another community Blood Drive and we need your help! There are THREE WAYS in which Chamber members can help make this event a success.

We would like to exceed that total this year, but we need your help in order to do that. Appointments run every 15 minutes starting at 12-Noon, with the last appointments at 5 p.m.  If you or someone you know would like to schedule an appointment please email  In your email please include the following
