WAYNE, PA - The 10th Annual Carol H. Axelrod Memorial Blood Drive will take place on Tuesday, May 4th, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the Radnor Activity Center (Sulpizio Gym) in Wayne. Appointments are required and can be scheduled at www.chablooddrive.org, at www.redcrossblood.org (enter sponsor code CHAMemorial), or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. All presenting donors at the blood drive will receive a special gift!

To ensure the safety of all blood donors and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Red Cross has implemented a number of important new procedures. Many donors may also have questions about donating blood after receiving one or two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. The new COVID-19 blood donation and post-vaccination guidelines implemented by the American Red Cross are below. If you have specific questions about these regulations, you can contact the American Red Cross Donor Client Support Center at 1-866-236-3276. You can also visit https://redcrossblood.org/Covid19 for the most up-to-date guidance from the Red Cross.

In honor of the 10th annual blood drive in Radnor Township, Michelle A. Scolnick, Founder, is proud to announce the “10 for 10” Community CHAllenge! For every unit of blood collected at the drive on May 4th, donations will be made to 10 local organizations that are carrying out important work in the Radnor community and beyond:

Radnor Fire Company/Radnor Ambulance
Wayne Food Pantry
Wayne Senior Center

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an ongoing, critical need for blood donations, as many blood drives that typically run at high schools, colleges, and businesses have been canceled or greatly reduced in size. This blood drive will provide an opportunity to ensure that blood products will be available for patients who need them in the late spring and early summer months.
