Late 2021

The Saturday November 6, 2021, Blood Drive & Health Fair wrap up: 25 single + 5 ‘double reds’ = 35 collected! Once processed, each unit collected translates to 3x the total for nearly 100 units of life saving blood-product (blood, platelets, plasma)!!! Well done #9, very well done!! PS – did you know the dollar value of a unit of whole blood is $180 – $300?
Doug McWard (1st from Right) & Bill Unwin (2nd from Right) double down with ‘double red’ (2 for 1) blood donations.

We need your help saving lives in the St. Louis area!

Please consider giving the gift of life by joining our PER Pete Makulec Memorial Blood Drive & Health Fair on Saturday, November 6, which will run from 9am-1pm. We need a big Elks #9 turnout to make this event a success. It’s easy to schedule an appointment and all presenting donors will receive their choice of a gift card or a retro-style ringer t-shirt!

Weather, holidays or tragic events can impact blood inventories.  Every day, patients who need blood are in crisis and you can help by volunteering to donate.  Less than 10% of the population gives blood, so donors that give on a regular basis are important to meet these needs.

The 6th Annual PER Pete Makulec Blood Drive & Health Fair is Saturday November 7th, 2020 from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
