West Hartford Kiwanis Encourage the Gift of Life

The Kiwanis Club of West Hartford is sponsoring a Blood Drive on Saturday, December 19 at the American Red Cross, 209 Farmington Avenue, Farmington. It will run from 6:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

“During the winter months, Hartford County is confronted with blood shortages due to low donor turnout as a result of inclement weather and hectic holiday schedules. The need for blood is constant and the blood supply must be regularly replenished,” according to Elizabeth Giungi, Account Coordinator for the American Red Cross Blood Services in Farmington.

The Kiwanis Club of West Hartford is part of a global organization of volunteers. The club meets two times per month on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 6:30pm. Meetings are open and guests are welcome.

For more information about meetings and the Kiwanis Club of West Hartford visit www.westhartfordkiwanis.org or call Claudia Bowles at 860.313.0101.
