Nursery School Blood Drive

Date: Friday, July 13, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Location: Fellowship Hall

 

Dear UCNS Families,

As most of you know, Imogen, one of the students from our 4s class, has been living at Children’s Hospital waiting for (and recently receiving!) a heart transplant. She used many pints of blood during her surgery, and the one thing her family has asked from the community is for us to donate blood to help repay their “debt” to the blood bank. If you’re interested in learning more about Imogen and her family’s journey, you can visit her mother’s blog.

To make this as easy as possible for anyone who feels called to help, we have arranged to have the Children’s Hospital Bloodmobile come to UCNS on July 13th from 10am-3pm. While the blood collection itself only takes about 15 minutes, please plan to be on-site for 45 minutes-one hour to allow for intake, the draw, and observation/snack time after the draw. Blood collected in will be used to stock the blood bank at Children’s Hospital to help other children like Imogen, and each pint can help 3-4 kids in need. Your gift can go a very long way! 

Since the drive will take place about a month after the end of our school year, this can also be a great way to catch up with friends! Bring your kiddos with you to play with friends on the playground while you donate; we’ll have an adult on site to look after them while you’re busy. Stay and chat with other adults once you’re finished. 

Please visit https://tinyurl.com/yd85vypw to schedule directly through the Children's Hospital system for a specific time slot, or just show up anytime between 10am-3pm.

Thank you all for being such a wonderful, supportive community. Imogen’s family has really been feeling the love!

 

Thank you,

Stephanie Brewer
