Blood Donation at the Gables

August 21, 2017 @ 2:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Every unit we donate at our blood drive can help save up to three lives. Each recipient of that blood donation has his or her own story. He or she could be an accident or trauma victim, cancer patient, a mother giving birth, a premature baby, a transplant recipient or surgical candidate. Our impact goes beyond that patient – it is multiplied by the impact it has on that person’s loved ones who are thankful for the unit we donated.

The American Red Cross could not meet patient needs and touch all of those lives if it were not for organizations like ours. We are proud to support our community, our country and be a part of the impact that the Red Cross makes every day.

Our upcoming blood drive collection goal on August 21st is 60 donors. Think about all of the lives we can touch by signing up to donate. A typical donation takes less than one hour, and we are proud to make that available to you in your neighborhood! Make your appointment today by visiting the Red Cross website, or by calling The Gables at Chadds Ford and asking for Nicole. If you can’t give, you can still make an impact by volunteering to support the drives and encouraging others to give using your social media channels and network.

Remember that every blood donation has a story attached to it. The story of why we donated; each volunteer’s story of why they helped; the story of why we hosted the blood drives and the recipient’s story when they receive a generous donation. Consider making your personal story part of the collective stories!

We are holding our blood drive in honor of Timothy "Timmy" Gaige. Timothy recently passed away from complications of b cell lymphoma. He is survived by his wife MaryBeth Saunders Gaige and three beautiful children. He put up a valiant fight, but unfortunately, he lost the battle. His treatment included many blood products, most of which came from anonymous donors, which would not be possible without donations at drives like this! Read more about Tim's journey on his CaringBridge page.

We look forward to your participation and seeing you there!


Best wishes to you, and thank you for making The Gables at Chadds Ford what it is. Let’s make an impact in our community on August 21st and add that to our list of great accomplishments.
