Eagle Cliff Campground to host first-time blood drive over Memorial Day weekend - Red Cross cooling towels and special T-shirts offered to all presenting donors

Posted in Lanesboro Health & Wellness

Eagle Cliff Campground is partnering with the American Red Cross to kick off the Red Cross “100 Days of Summer. 100 Days of Hope.” campaign by reminding eligible donors that their support is needed. On May 24 and 25, Eagle Cliff will host a blood drive to help ensure patients have the lifesaving blood products they need this summer. In appreciation, all presenting donors will receive a Red Cross cooling towel and special T-shirt, while supplies last.

“We are so excited to start the camping season off this year by hosting a Red Cross blood drive,” said Emily Spende, owner, Eagle Cliff Campground. “Making a blood donation with the Red Cross is an easy way to extend hope and help ensure lifesaving blood products are available for patients here in our community and across the nation.”

Eagle Cliff Campground blood donation opportunities:

•May 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Eagle Cliff Campgrounds in Lanesboro

•May 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Eagle Cliff Campgrounds in Lanesboro

Vacations and summer activities often result in a decline in blood donations during the summer. In fact, during the months of June, July and August, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what patients need. The trend is particularly noticeable around holidays like Memorial Day.

“100 Days of Summer. 100 Days of Hope.” runs through September 1. All summer, the Red Cross will encourage at least two more donors to give blood at each Red Cross blood drive – above what is expected. Individuals can visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to choose a day to donate and help sustain adequate supplies over the summer months.

How to Donate Blood

Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
