Donate Blood. Save a life. Donating blood makes a big difference in the lives of others.
On October 17th, we’ll roll up our sleeves to help save lives! We are partnering with the American Red Cross to hold what we expect to be the first of many blood drives. Our blood drive is important to patients in need, but the collection and distribution of blood is just a small part of all the Red Cross does. The enormity of what the Red Cross accomplishes every day is astounding and this is one of the reasons we chose them as one of our core community outreach partners.
Every unit we donate at our blood drive can help save up to three lives. Each recipient of that blood donation has his or her own story. He or she could be an accident or trauma victim, cancer patient, a mother giving birth, a premature baby, a transplant recipient or surgical candidate. Our impact goes beyond that patient – it is multiplied by the impact it has on that person’s loved ones who are thankful for the unit we donated.
Each pint of blood collected can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives of so many more. What a great way to pay it forward and make an impact on people in our community and across the country.
At UKRFCU, we are proud to hold the blood drive in partnership with the Red Cross, giving us all an opportunity to make a difference. There are many ways you can help, but most importantly we hope you come out to donate. UKRFCU leaders have signed up to give blood, and we’re looking forward to seeing many more of you, our members.

Thursday, October 17th from 2 pm to 7 pm

Remember that every blood donation has a story attached to it. The story of why we donated; each volunteer’s story of why they helped; the story of why we hosted the blood drives and the recipient’s story when they receive a generous donation. To register, please call us at 215-725-4430.
It’s not every day that we do something that has such a lifesaving impact. Therefore, together, let’s make an impact on October 17th and add it to our list of great accomplishments.
