Look for our next blood drive around the end of October.

NEWS RELEASE

Katie Davis Memorial Blood Drive, Saturday, May 20, 2017
Kenilworth Union Church, 211 Kenilworth Avenue, Kenilworth, IL, 7:30 a.m.  to  noon.

We are again holding the Katie Davis Memorial Blood Drive on Saturday, May 20 at Kenilworth Union Church, 211 Kenilworth Avenue, Kenilworth from 8 a.m.  to noon and ask all eligible individuals to consider giving blood to this very worthy drive.

This drive began in the mid 1990’s to support Kenilworth resident Katie Davis who was suffering from a form of pediatric cancer. Katie was supported by donors for quite some time and donations were truly a source of life for her. She even thanked donors in a letter published in the Pioneer Press in 1995. Unfortunately, Katie did not survive her fight, but the blood drive continues twice a year, as a reminder of the power a blood donation can have. Katie’s struggle has had an effect on so many others who have benefited from donations made in her honor, who continue to survive and grow stronger, thanks only to a blood donation. Recently, we have returned to the original home of these blood drives, Kenilworth Union Church. This drive is being held in conjunction with the Church’s outreach ministries and the American Red Cross. All are welcome at this drive.

Do something that celebrates life and give blood. It takes 20 minutes, and is pretty painless. All it will cost you is a little time. Please take time to stop by on Saturday. You will genuinely feel great for having done so. We promise you a warm and friendly welcome.

Walk-ins are also welcome.
