THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE PENNSIC WARS

Red Cross Blood Drive

Greeting good gentles of the Known World.

The Pennsic War will soon be upon us, and while we are 'playing war' with our friends, many others are fighting one for their lives. Every blood donation is a chance to save a life, so please remember there will be a Red Cross blood drive during Pennsic.

Place: Zion Baptist Church, 148 Curry Road, Slippery Rock, PA
Dates: Friday, August 4th and Monday, August 7th
Times: 10 am to 3:30 pm

The church is within walking distance of the Pennsic site, but the Red Cross will run a shuttle van (leaving from the south end of the battlefield). We encourage you to ride the van so that you arrive with normal pulse and blood and are not turned away from donating!

Pre-registration

If you would like to pre-register to donate, volunteer to help, or would just like more information, please contact me by July 27th.

You can also pre-register on-line at www.redcrossblood.org. Search for blood drives in zipcode 16057, select August 4th or 7th, and choose your appointment time. (Note: we are in the process of registering our drive.)

Once War is underway, you can sign up at First Aid Point. Walk in's are welcome, however, the Red Cross bases their staffing on pre-registration numbers, so the more people who pre-register before War, the more staff we may get.

Identification is now required for all Red Cross Blood donors.
Preferred methods of ID are:

  • American Red Cross donor card
  • Driver's license
  • State ID
  • Passport
  • Military ID
  • INS "green" card

A student ID, corporate ID, or credit card is also acceptable if it contains a photo. There is a secondary list of acceptable identification, available at First Aid Point or you can e-mail me.

Together, we can make a difference. So, "Be a Hero, Save a Life at Pennsic War."

In Service and Thanks,
