Como Community Blood Drives
D10 Como Park partners with the American Red Cross and the Como Zoo & Conservatory to coordinate community blood drives at the Zoo. Reservations are required to donate (may not be available until date gets closer).
Upcoming Drive Dates:
- Tuesday, October 18, 2022 – 9am-3pm
- Wednesday, December 7, 2022 – 9am-3pm
- Wednesday, March 8, 2023 – 9am-3pm
- Thursday, May 25, 2023 – 9am-3pm
With the pandemic lingering and so many still working from home, workplace blood drives have all but vanished, affecting the Red Cross’ reserve levels. Community blood drives are the perfect opportunity to take a break from the home office or start a fall trip to the zoo!
If you’re interested in volunteering at the check-in table, you can sign-up for an opening on our volunteer schedule or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The drives are split into two shifts of two volunteers each, 9am to Noon and Noon to 3pm. It’s light work and a great way to connect with another neighbor.
