District 10 Como Community Council

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:

  • Wednesday, March 8, 2023 – 9am-3pm
  • Thursday, May 25, 2023 – 9am-3pm
  •  Tuesday, August 1, 2023 – 9am-3pm
  • Tuesday, October 17, 2023 – 9am-3pm
  • Wednesday, December 6, 2023 – 9am-3pm

With 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 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 district10@district10comopark.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.
