Give the gift of life: TWO more blood drives in Grandmont Rosedale!!

Jun 23rd, 2020

Our earlier American Red Cross blood drive on June 3rd was a great success, so we are encouraged to proceed with more events.  The need for blood continues, and collection locations in Detroit are especially needed. We are happy to share the plans to conduct TWO more blood drives in the Grandmont Rosedale neighborhoods this summer.

Both drives will be conducted by the American Red Cross at the North Rosedale Community House, 18445 Scarsdale, thanks to the generosity of the North Rosedale Park Civic Association, which is making their facility available.   Masks will be required for all participants, and physical distancing will be observed as much as possible
Here are the details:


As an additional benefit to donating blood at these drives, donors will automatically have their blood tested for COVID-19 antibodies by the Red Cross and will be notified of the results about a week after their donation.


Each 6-hour drive needs about 15 community volunteers to assist.  Assignments include taking donor temperatures, using a computer to check pre-registration details, and passing out juice and cookies after donations.  Volunteer shifts are 2-1/2 hours long - here are the hours:

To sign up to volunteer, contact Pam Weinstein at or 313-231-2244.


We need donors and we need volunteers.  Please share the above information widely in your neighborhood social media and newsletters.
