HCCO Bleed & Feed

It's time to give of yourself...donate blood and then replenish yourself by going out to dinner with fellow donors and freethinkers.

You can donate at the Carriage Place Donor Center from 4:00pm - 6:00pm, then dinner! This month, we'll be eating at Chile Verde, right around the corner. If you cannot donate, come and cheer on those who can.

Learn more about who's eligible to donate, and make an appointment at the Red Cross website. The donor center does prefer if you make an appointment, but walk-in donations are also welcome (so don't shy away just because you forgot to schedule an appt).

    I know this isn't true of everyone, but I never participated in anything until I really embraced my skeptical side of all things religious. My wife works in an emergency room and they say they always need blood and it does save lives. So I give blood. People need to eat so I donate time and food to soup kitchens. I love dogs, so I help out at the dog shelters. I can't save everyone, but I can help and for some reason I never had that urge when I was going to church.

    Unless I get over this head cold quickly, I won't be eligible to donate.

      Head cold was chest cold and fever by today, so unfortunately, no. How did the dispatch stuff go?

      Went well! The photographer was very nice and interested in what we do. Took about a million pictures. Should be in today's paper - I plan to pick up a copy on my way into the office today.

    Last minute meeting blew my appointment. Possible to donate tommow?

      You bet! But you won't have me there to remind you to get the red tape.

    FYI Lyz, I was unable to donate at 3 as scheduled due to recent dental work that disqualified me.

      Bummer! Hopefully you'll be back on track soon!

    I have a migraine today, so there's no way I can make it. So sorry! Next time!!

    • Lyz L.

      No problem! I hope you feel better soon!

    I'm scheduled at 5:30! I'd be willing to be photographed for the Dispatch, provided I'm not in the process of passing out/going into shock (it's my first time donating, so anything could happen).

    Are we just rabble without codes? Sounds like a James Dean film. However I did register as an anonymous donor at 5PM on 2/20. See y'all there.

      We are, in fact, rabble without codes, unless we're hosting our own drive at the office. That's in April (4/24, I think). Glad to have you join us!

    When scheduling an appointment the Red Cross requests a sponsor code. Have we one for the HCCO?

    Hey, folks! The Columbus Dispatch is interested in doing a photo shoot at our Bleed & Feed! What times are y'all's appointments, so I can tell her a time when there will be bleedin' heathens there to photograph?

    Also, if you're not interested in having your photo appear in the Columbus Dispatch associated with said heathens and service projects, just let me know. Don't want to out anyone. :)

    Thanks!

    I can't donate this time, but I'll be there for dinner and to cheer folks on!

    Don't forget to make your appointments! I got my phone call today. The phone rep was having trouble finding the drive, but I found it online no problem - let's get signed up!
