Save the Date for the Ford’s Colony Blood Drive – December 13, 2013.

The need for blood is exceptionally high this time of year.  Ford’s Colony is trying to reach a goal of over 70 pints of blood during the drive on December 13th.  They will be raffling many items off that day in an effort to increase the nuber of pints collected.  Each person who donates will be awarded one raffle ticket. Each person that calls 258-4270 to make an appointment will receive an additional raffle ticket. You can also receive an additional raffle ticket for each person that you get to donate that day. There is no limit to the amount of raffle tickets you can collect, so bring your friends and family!

Prizes will range from Red Cross gift bags, Red Cross tee shirts, Red Cross cookbooks, and some special prizes donated by local vendors! Please call to make your appointment. Each pint collected can help as many as three people in need.  The blood drive will take place at the S&T Club.

Come out and help save lives!

Calling All Donors…Blood Drive on April 8th!

Thinking about donating blood?         

Did you know that every minute of every day, someone needs blood?  That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute for your donation. 

When you make a blood donation, you join a very select group. Currently only 3 out of every 100 people in America donate blood.

It could not be easier…donating blood takes so little time, and can literally change someone else’s life. 

Ford’s Colony has made it so easy to do – on Friday, April 8th, you can donate blood between the hours of 11am-4pm at the Swim and Tennis Club.

Call Christopher Schwenker, Jr. at 757-258-4270 to make an appointment to donate blood.  Or, you can email him at
