Rock River Valley Blood Center to host High School Reunion Blood Drive

CherryVale Mall will be the host site of the Rock River Valley Blood Center’s 2005 High School Reunion Blood Drive Thursday, July 7 and Friday, July 8. The blood drive, geared toward high school students but open to anyone eligible to donate blood, will be held from 2-7 p.m. on Thursday, July 7 and from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Friday, July 8 at CherryVale Mall’s Center Court area. Prizes, giveaways and complimentary snacks from mall food retailers are some of the “swag” being offered during the High School Reunion Blood Drive, including a chance to win an iPod.

This is the first year the Rock River Valley Blood Center will be holding their High School Reunion Blood Drive at CherryVale Mall. “We are pleased to partner with the Rock River Valley Blood Center on this fun, but worthwhile event, geared toward young people. We realize that summer is a critical time for helping build up the blood supply and are eager to assist with Rock River Valley Blood Center’s efforts. Since CherryVale Mall is a destination for many area teens and adults, this event is a perfect match and will allow donors to meet up with friends and make a difference. Plus, the Blood Center is hoping to exceed the goal of 100 donors per day since the High School Reunion Blood Drive coincides with the mall’s Sidewalk Sale,” said Cindy Hindes, CherryVale Mall marketing director. “We hope that our shoppers, 17 years and older, will take a few minutes to contribute to this important area effort.”

The Rock River Valley Blood Center welcomes walk-ins during the High School Reunion Blood Drive. For those wishing to schedule an appointment time, call the Center at 965-8751.
