5110 Celebration Teams with Red Cross

Club Presidents & People of Action  – as we prepare for the District 5110 2022 Celebration Conference in Corvallis, it is our intent to merge a service project with our April 30th event, one that would have a defining humanitarian focus of serving others in need.    To that end, I am thrilled to announce that we have partnered with the Red Cross to establish a rewarding, fulfilling, fun competitive virtual blood drive:  District Drives to Save Lives.   

This event will begin on March 22nd and conclude on April 29, 2022 when the blood mobile is at the District Celebration Street Party OR “use your club link” to sign up to give blood and help meet the crucial need for donations..  It is easy and simple for club members to participate and, most importantly, it will save lives!

Attached you will find the following:

  1. A letter explaining the District Drives to Save Lives.  Please read – it provides a greater understanding of the service event.
  2.  A District Drives to Save Lives flyer. Both the flyer and the letter can be reproduced/copied and given to members, or simply sent as a pdf to everyone in the club.
  3. A short video for a club meeting outlining the effort:: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fIB-fL3l1c.
  4. Please promote this activity with members of your club and encourage participation.

Not only will it be personally rewarding for individuals, but it will save lives!    Thank you for your attention to this very important and worthwhile service event.
