The Red Cross Blood Drive sponsored by the Westport Young Woman’s League at the Joseph J. Clinton VFW Post 399 on Wednesday, January 20th was a major success! Again, the Blood Drive had a completely full reservation schedule exceeding our record of 55 blood donors and goal of 30 appointments! The success of the blood drive and community support is vital during the COVID-19 pandemic. All life-saving blood donations are being tested for COVID-19 antibodies to help coronavirus patients!
The Channel 12 news team arrived to interview and discuss the importance of blood donations during the pandemic. VFW Post 399 is also very proud of our recognition by being awarded the American Red Cross Outstanding Service Award!
|“The American Red Cross is so grateful for partners that continue to stand with us throughout the coronavirus pandemic. This is the time to take care of one another, and your upcoming blood drive is essential to ensuring the health of those in our community. We’re in this together!”|
Future Red Cross Blood Drives at VFW Post 399 are scheduled for February 10th, March 11th, April 21st and June 22nd.
