Moms host blood drive

May 19, 2010 - Clarkston Area Mothers and More and nonprofit Michigan Blood host a blood drive, 1-7 p.m., Tuesday, May 25, at First Missionary Church, 4832 Clintonville Road.

"We hope everyone in the Clarkston area will roll up their sleeves to help by giving blood," said Stacy Meagher, volunteer.

The blood drive is a community service project of Clarkston Area Mothers and More, a nonprofit group dedicated to improving lives of mothers, in conjunction with Michigan Blood, a nonprofit blood bank that supplies hospitals throughout Michigan.

"We enjoy working with all our blood drive sponsors, but the Clarkston Area Mothers and More group is super enthusiastic," said Karalee McKinstry, donor relations specialist for Michigan Blood. "They are willing to go the extra mile to promote their blood drive and we are hoping they get a great response from the public."

Any healthy person 17 or older who weighs 110 pounds or more can give a pint of blood, a 7-10 minute procedure. The process, from sign-in to post-donation snack and rest, takes about 45-60 minutes.

Clarkston Area Mothers and More hosts weekly playgroups, moms' and couple's nights out, family and children's activities, and book club. The group meets on the third Tuesday each month at 7:30 p.m., at Red Knapp's American Grill, 6722 Dixie Highway.

To make an appointment to donate blood, call Stacy at 248-241-6000 or Teresa at 248-515-1294.
