The VFW Post 399 hosted their 12th consecutive monthly Red Cross Blood Drive and most successful with over 55 registered donors on Wednesday, August 18th! This event was a huge success….VFW Post 399 Quartermaster, Phil Delgado said, “I want to personally thank the donors who gave the gift of life and all the VFW and Auxiliary members who helped to make this day a success! For planning purposes, our next Red Cross Blood Drive is scheduled for Wednesday, September 22nd between 11am-4pm.
Donors who come to give Aug. 16-31, 2021, and have a valid email address on file, will receive a $5 e-gift card to a merchant of their choice. We are partnering with Bonnaroo to offer donors who come to give Aug. 1-15, 2021, a chance to win an exclusive VIP journey for two to the sold-out 2021 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.
The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!
A special thank you to Izzy & Son Country Gardens (https://izzocountrygardens.com) for their gracious flower donation to VFW Post 399. Again, Craig Logan and Tracy Carothers donated their time to expertly plant the flowers with care….what a great way to honor 101 years of veteran and community support!!!
